These lines are fashioned, rhyme on rhyme, 

Ana word by word, one at a time. 

And so it is the wide world through 

There are so many tasks to do, 

Yet all of them come not at once 

But with the days and weeks and months 

And long, glad years in which we build 

The purpose of our being filled 

With bonds of faith and truth and love. 

And hopes that reach the skies above.

To Mr. Howe 

To him who in an inherent love of man 
And true desire to give him of his best 
Claims heritage with the teachers of the past. 

A friend to whom we all might turn for help. 
With implicit confidence that we would find 
A wealth of simple council — wisely given. 

Each hour he spent among us is repaid 

By the living influence which cannot help but last 

In the hearts of all who called him friend. 





Henry Whittemore Memorial 

THE Henry Whittemore Memorial was erected by the classes of 1917, 1918, 
1919 of the Framingham Normal School in loving appreciation of Mr. Whitte- 
more's interest in them. Mr. Henry Whittemore of Waltham was the principal 
of the school for nineteen years, from 1898 to 1917. 

The girls of 1917, 1918, 1919 made up the student body during Mr. Whitte- 
more's last year. Their tribute to his many years of service for the welfare and 
growth of the school and to his constant example of Living to the Truth was given 
in the form of the brick and limestone entrance, which stands at the north end of 
the campus. They chose this as the expression of their appreciation because it 
had been a part of Mr. Whittemore's plans for the beautifying of the grounds to 
build an entrance at this place. 

They selected Mr. Frank Kendall, a Framingham architect, to prepare the 
plans and supervise the construction of the memorial. His interest and effort have 
created a simple, dignified structure. 

At the commencement in June 1917, the last in which Mr. Whittemore served 
as principal of the school, the student body through their chosen representative, 
Miss Louise Kingman, made the announcement of their intention to build the 
memorial. The heavy financial strain of the war delayed the accomplishment of 
their plan until the spring of 1921. 

The Whittemore Memorial was dedicated on Baccalaureate Sunday, June 12, 
1921. The class of 1921 assisted the alumna? in the service of dedication. Miss 
Grace Carden, president of the class of 1918, presented the gift to Mr. Whittemore 
and to the school. Mr. Whittemore spoke to the group of students, alumna?, 
and the fathers and mothers and friends gathered on the hillside, expressing his 
appreciation of the memorial, of his sincere interest in the school, and of his wishes 
for its growth in preparing women of high character and high ideals for the service 
of the state.

Music by Marian Graves 

Class Hymn 

Great God, who guideth us through all our days. 
Teach us to see the wisdom of Thy ways ; 
Grant us, not only treasures oi the mind, 
But love and sympathy for all mankind. 

May we go forth with strength of heart and soul. 
Willing to struggle for a worthy goal ; 
And when our faith we cannot clearly see, 
Help us, O Lord, to find our light in Thee. 

— Lucile Snow

Where her springs are, her leaks, and how to stop 'em; 
What strands, what shelves, what rocks do threaten her.

Middle Juniors 

SEPTEMBER 14, 1921 arrived in due time, bringing with it to the hill eighty odd girls, ready 
to assume the varied and much talked-of duties as Middle Juniors — the said duties being 
charts innumerable, drafts of all shapes and descriptions, and notebooks in number beyond mention. 

However, with everyone in the best of spirits and ready for work, we held a class meeting as 
soon as possible and elected as our president, Louise Baker. 

From that time on, our work has been going on steadily. But along with our work there have 
been good times, and one of the first of these which we all anticipated with much pleasure was the 
Hallowe'en Party. This year, instead of having a separate class party, we joined with the Seniors 
in planning a none too quiet time for the Juniors, when we introduced them to the thrills, throbs 
and falls encountered in the fatal walk through the underworld of Framingham — in other words — 
our common and harmless everyday tunnel. 

From that time on, there was more or less work until the Christmas holidays and parties took 
the lead. Then, with our much-appreciated Christmas vacation over, we came back to school with 
but one thought in our minds — the coming "prom." It is the date of February eleventh that means 
the most to us now. We will always remember it as being one of the best times of our lives. Its 
great success is acknowledged by all. 

At the same time, there are lurking in the back of our heads, plans for the class play — plans 
that will develop into the real thing very soon. 

With so many things to occupy our minds, we are all kept busy and happy with still another 
year of work and play at school before us. 




THE Junior class met September 1921, for the first time, to carry out the very important business 
of electing its officers. This did not take much time, however, which is perhaps due to the fact 
that so few of us had become acquainted! The following officers were elected: 

Bertha Bishop, President 
Mildred Weaver, Vice-President 
Marion Ladd, Secretary 
Dorothy Pratt, Treasurer 
Our doubt as to whether we really wanted to stay at F. N. S, or go back home, was very soon 
settled by the friendliness of the Upper Classmen and by the good times which were given us. The 
first real "get-to-gether party" was the Acquaintance Party in May Hall, at which nearly every 
Junior was present. This party proved to be a success, for many of the girls found that the world 
is not so large, after all, since there were other girls who came from the same State in places very 
near their own, who also knew some of their friends. 

Next came the Faculty Reception, which helped the students to know the teachers, at least by 
name, with whom later they expected to become better acquainted. 

The Hallowe'en party served as a chance for the Juniors to prove what good sports they were. 
Even the Middle Juniors admitted that. 

It would be impossible to say at which party we had the best time — the Harvard and Yale 
game, with the banquet which followed, or the Christmas party. By this time, we felt as if we were 
really a part of Framingham, helping to carry on that spirit which has made us so love the school. 
The thing which seems to loom up as one very special time this year for the Juniors is our Prom, 
which is to be May thirteenth. We feel very proud to be the first Junior class which has been granted 
this privilege, and we are very enthusiastically planning to make it a great success.

The three-fold purpose of this organization is: 

1. To promote school spirit by the co-operation of all classes. 

2. To be a connecting link between the principal and the students. 

3. To be a representative group to suggest improvements on matters pertaining to 

school life. 




The Experimental Kitchen 

ONE of the joys of a Middle Junior is the knowledge that the Experimental Kitchen, known 
to the girls as the X. P. K., belongs to them. 

At the beginning of this year, with the very helpful assistance of Mr. Ried and Miss Harmon, 
plans were made for the organization and management of the little cottage during the year. These 
plans included the acquiring of some new equipment for the kitchen, and the freshening up of the 
little living room, which affords an ideal place for various club meetings, and a pleasant environment 
in which to enjoy the results of one's own cooking. 

The kitchen this year has reverted more to its original plan, and has been used to a great extent 
for experimental work, both in cooking and chemistry. 


Crocker Hall 

AWE was in the very word Crocker during our Junior year. Could we ever attain such a 
-*• *■ goal? It seemed impossible then, but here we are almost ready to leave it, taking with us only 
fond reminiscences. 

In September, we came back to school looking forward to a happy life in Crocker. Busy greeting 
our classmates, we neglected for a few minutes to observe that the crushed raspberry hue of the 
walls of previous years had been replaced throughout the dormitory by a restful buff color. 

Perhaps that first day meant more to "B" division than it did to "A," for their House Practice 
started that night. 

At the close of the semester in January, "A" division took up the duties that the "B's" were 
so reluctant to leave. Shall we ever forget that morning when, with teeth chattering, the first 
cooks wended their way down the back stairs to the realms below? 

Good times were many, ranging from sings in the living room to the dramatizing of Vitamines 
on third, just before an examination. 

But Crocker has meant more to us than just good times, for it is here that we have found the 
deeper and finer feelings of the greater things in life which seem to link us anew to the wonderful 
spirit of Framingham.

■p\0 you remember that official looking letter that came from the "Framingham Normal School" back in the summer 
*-* of 1920? And did you open it with fear and trembling, only to find two lines telling you that you had Room No. — 
in Peirce Hall. 

And then September and the day of arrival. How we all rushed into the office to see where our room was located, 
and when Miss Borgeson said. "West wing" or "East wing," you suddenly realized that you had never learned the points 
of the compass in Framingham, and disliking to show your ignorance, you started bravely off to search each door for the 
number corresponding to yours. Thus began that memorable year. 

We chose for our house president "Lib" Davis, and she surely made good. The one thing we'll always remember 
about her term in office is the way she made us pass out the nickels and dimes — to say it with flowers and music. 

Another event! The Hallowe'en party for just Faculty and Middle Juniors. How did you sign up? 

"To die by the Inches — Head First" or 
"To die by the Feet — Feet First" 

We had a sleigh ride too. Horace Mann Hall went along with us. That was the night "Bid" took her famous tumble 
right out of our sleigh, in front of the horses of the sleigh behind. Then she gave a scream and rolled into the gutter. 
Wouldn't it have been dreadful if "Bid" had been skinny and couldn't roll. Miss Sutcliffe kept us all in good spirits 
with her store of funny stories — the seven varieties! 

Soon it was February, and then the special deliveries and the telephone calls, and along came February fifth when 
we peeped into the dining room and discovered it had turned into a corner of Iceland, with snowmen, icicles, and Christmas 
trees, a real fort and lots of music — Why, of course, it was our "Prom." 

And then breakfast the next morning — the visitors surely made a good showing. So Manly! 

Another success was a roof-garden party — Marian Graves had charge. Refreshments did you say? Yes, gallons 
and gallons — Some Punch! And after the party, oh, how tired we were, so some of us just "picked up our beds and walked" 
— back to the roof garden and there we slept! Three nights we did this, but on the third — cruel world — it rained! And 
having no roof, only the garden, and knowing that even tho rain makes flowers pretty, we were not flowers — Knowing all 
this, we decided to go back to our appointed places — Ye rooms of the dorm. 

Always having been a sympathetic Class, when the time came we proved our test. The Armenian Relief called forth 
our best efforts. Just think of the signs along the corridors — "Shampoos 10c." "Manicuring 25c," "Eyebrows Pulled" — 
fess up, did you have yours done? — "Total solids Calculations 10c," "Rugs Cleaned." "Stockings Darned," and the "Rum- 
mage Sale." We all patronized our neighbors, and it surely was fun! But I wonder if the Near East felt as relieved as 
the rest of us when the siege was over! 

Our help and inspiration came from Miss Carden and Miss Borgeson this year, our matrons, who were always ready to 
join us in fun and frolic, or to aid us when we needed guidance. 

June came, our Middle Junior year was over, but with September in view, when we could come back to claim the 
title of "Seniors," we were in a way recompensed. 






Horace Mann Hall 

WHAT could have added more charm to our campus than the completion of Horace Mann Hall. 
Impossible to forget our first year there. Everything was made so attractive and homelike — 
that in spite of a few inconveniences — such as the lack of a laundry and showers — we were always 
happy. How could we help being happy with Miss Newton to help and advise us. Being sick wasn't 
bad at all in those days. 

Everyone of us can remember the day the piano arrived. That was the beginning of our Tuesday 
and Thursday evening dancing. Spreads, corridor parties, birthday parties and food sales were 
only a few of our diversions. 

Just one terrible shadow hangs over our life in Horace Mann Hall. That was the week we 
were punished for bad behavior by the omission of our half-hour of recreation after study hour. 
Plenty to say, but no one to whom to say it. 

One of our pleasantest memories is the attractive terrace on the front of the building, where 
we spent as much time as possible. We only regret we had so little leisure in which we could take 
advantage of this. 

There isn't space to mention all our good times — nor is there need. Each one of us will carry 
away memories which are particularly dear. Each one who is fortunate enough to have a room 
there will realize what it means to have lived in Horace Mann Hall. 




Vocational House 

THREE years ago, the Hunt House was taken over as Headquarters of the Vocational Depart- 
ment. The first year was busily spent in attending classes, studying, and answering the in- 
variable question, "But how does your course differ from the H. A. course?" We always answered, 
"Well, it's harder, and then we must be 'women of maturity,' so that we have house practice our 
first year instead of our last year." That is the secret of our many good times together. In this 
way, one was a's green as another in "scientific management," so we just had to put our heads together 
and make things go. Miss Sturtevant is our Taskmistress, and, at the beginning of our second year, 
Miss Banks joined us as assistant. 

There are far too many incidents to relate here; but — THE COAL EXPERIMENT (never 
again); Stunt Show; Faculty Tea; and then in June our Farewell Banquet were among the biggest 
milestones of the first year for us. 

Good luck favored us our second year, and we were allowed to room in the Vocational House 
again, where we had a fine chance to get acquainted with our Juniors. They soon proved to be very 
efficient cooks, and made such a huge success of house practice, studies, and all they undertook, 
that we were quite envious. 

Didn't we have fun! Just think of the Auction, girls, the Wedding, Middle Junior dinner party 
and dance, amateur "Ciinters," and picnic suppers when spring came. It doesn't sound very dull. 

This year we, as Seniors, came to Peirce Hall to live — minus Bessie, for she has taken her degree 
of M. R. S. From all appearances, life goes on as happily as ever at Vocational House. The Middle 
Juniors stayed there until January, and then yielded the grounds to the Juniors. We fear that it 
was with feelings of regret that the Juniors left the Dormitories, but just see how happy and healthy 
they are now. As varied as their duties are, — from cook to waitress, from kitchen canary to hostess, 
they like it more each day. 

Baby Elizabeth, with her formulas, schedule, etc., sounds very scientific, but she is really a very 
happy baby. Her many "aunts" enjoy their turn as nurse, and when not on duty, find time to go 
into the nursery and play with her. 

Altho we Seniors are living at Peirce Hall, we haven't let the grass grow in the path over the 
hill. Few days pass without our making a trip to the house where we have spent so many happy 
hours. The Juniors always welcome us, and look forward to the day when they shall be Seniors. 
Watch them grow! 







Summer School 

/"\N July 17, thirty-eight of us came back from our vacations ready for three weeks of work 
^-^ and fun — both of which we sure did have in abundance. With Miss Armstrong as chaperone, 
Miss Weeks as matron and pal, and Dr. Meier not. only as instructor, but as a friend and entertainer, 
we were indeed fortunate. Our program was as follows: 

7 A. M. Breakfast 

8 A. M. Work 
12 M. Dinner 
1-5-9.30 P. M. Work 
6 P. M. Supper 

6.30-9.30 P. M. Our own time (?) 
8-9 P. M. Lectures (last week) 
10 P. M. Lights out 
10 P. M. — General good time for all. 
We not only canned but picked the beans — as we will well remember — did our own house- 
keeping and prepared our own meals. On account of the latter, there was a great saving in service, 
doctor's bills and time that otherwise might have been spent in making trips to the tea-room. 

We never knew there were so many beans in the world, until we saw our 2130 quarts all canned. 
In addition to this, we canned 266 quarts of blueberries, 52 quarts of rhubarb, 51^ quarts of beets, 
43 y 2 quarts of carrots, besides several pounds of jelly. 

Our lectures consisted of talks and demonstrations, not only by Dr. Meier and the girls, but 
by home demonstration leaders and by members of various clubs connected with the work. 

Despite the hard work when Dr. Meier forgot to say "While you rest do — " we had lots of fun 
and every last one of us will remember the Summer School of 1921, wishing that we could come back

OUR Y. W. C. A. has been truly alive this year, and growing in spiritual power and Christian 

At the first of the school year, our President met all those interested in V. W. C. A., and spoke 
to them of its value and meaning. From the splendid talk, we gained loyal supporters. Many 
Juniors became members, and proved themselves good workers and co-operators. 

The membership drive was held in October. The V. W. C. A. doors were opened and many 
students came out wearing the triangle. 

The Social Committee has been busy planning "Weenie roasts" parties or concerts for every 
free week-end, so that the girls who stay over may have an enjoyable time. 

At Thanksgiving time, the Social Service Committee had boxes placed on the tables in the 
dining hall, and the students put in their contributions. This money was used in getting Thanks- 
giving dinners for several poor families of Framingham. 

The Christmas Bazaar was a success. Twenty dollars of the proceeds was given to the Student 
Friendship drive. The rest of the money was used by the Social Committee, Conference Committee 
and the Social Service Committee in worth-while ways. 

At the Christmas time, the poor children of Framingham were remembered with one toy and 
a useful present. The Home for the Aged received fruit, candy and other small remembrances. 

The Y. W. C. A. holds four meetings a week. Our Sunday night meetings have been well 
attended. Many girls have proved to be good leaders. The memory of these meetings will linger 
with us even when we are far from Framingham. The Cabinet meets Monday afternoons to discuss 
business problems of the Association. The Wednesday afternoon meetings have proved a source 
of help and inspiration, due largely to the speakers we have been privileged to hear. Bible study 
is held Wednesday evenings. These are informal gatherings where interesting discussions are raised 

May our Y. W. C. A. hold high the Christian banner at Framingham, and may our noble prin- 
ciples stand fast through all time. 




rr ">j£ 


IT is quite a feat for twenty girls to go from Boston to Maqua by boat, car and train, and get 
there safely — but we did. It was on the twenty-first of June. 

No words can fully describe our Maqua Land. It is a place where God dwells, and where one 
can feel His touch divine. Shut away from the laboring, striving world, we have time to commune 
with ourselves and nature. "Maqua" is the Indian name for birches, and no name could be more 
appropriate. The birches murmur and sway in the breeze that comes rippling over the lake. In 
the stillness of evening, can be heard the call of the laughing loon. The sunrises and sunsets cannot 
be compared with anything here on earth — words seem so inadequate at this time — all we can say 
is "They are wonderful!" 

We began the day's program with morning worship. These few minutes of song and helpful 
words gave every day a beautiful start. Our classes were most interesting. We divided our group 
so that one or more of the girls would be in each of the seven classes. In our delegation discussions, 
we talked over the various courses. This gave us an opportunity to get a glimpse into all of the 

The Conference Forums were lead by Rev. Richard Wallace Hogue, D.D. We learned many 
valuable and interesting things from him. Industrial problems were brought up, and both college 
and industrial girls discussed them. This was a time when we could get another's point of view, 
and sympathize with the working girl. 

Technical councils were held on three days. In between classes came various committee meet- 
ings. In the afternoon, quiet hour was observed. After this, we had time for various social events 
and out-of-door sports. Tennis, swimming, baseball and boating are some of the sports we enjoyed. 
To take a long hike into the thick forests, and read or write letters there, is an experience that brings 
back a thrill at the thought. 

The event of the conference was the Prize Song Contest. Each delegation submitted a song, 
and the judges chose the best all-round piece of work. Middlebury received the prize. Framing- 
ham received the honorable mention. 

Maqua memories will cause Maqua Land to live in us forever, and because of these memories, 
the spirit we have brought back will be perpetuated. 


Where the gentle breezes murmur thru the birches, 

Like the hymn of praise from churches 

Rise to the sky. 

And the sun-kissed waters sing of happy hours 

Spent beneath thy leafy bowers, 

In Maqua Land. 

Thy sunrise fairest, 
Thy sunset rarest, 
Bring inspiration, meditation, 
As the hours slip along. 
We'll take thy spirit, 
Thy noble spirit 
Back to comrades far, far from our dear Maqua Land. 

When the shadows o'er the waters come a-stealing, 
And the vesper bell is pealing, 
In clear sweet tones. 

Again we hear Him to His dear disciples talking, 
In the cool of evening walking 
By Galilee.

TO celebrate its fifth birthday, the A' Kempis Club this year took a new lease on life by becoming 
a member of the Federation of College Catholic Clubs. This has tended to broaden the interest 
of our Club insomuch as it affiliates us with the Catholic Clubs of other colleges. 

We have had many interesting and inspiring meetings this year, with such speakers as Dr. Gibson, 
President of the Federation of College Catholic Clubs; Father Cunningham of St. John's Seminary, 
Brighton, and our own chaplain, Dr. O'Connor. 

On March 17. two short plays, "Sham" and "The Florist Shop," were staged under the auspices 
of the Club. With Miss Kingman's generous help and the work of the girls, they proved a great 

We hope that next year the girls will exert all their energy in making the A' Kempis Club a real 
help and credit to the school and themselves, both from the religious and social points of view, for 
we realize that the ideals of the Club have not yet been reached. However, we feel that we have 
taken definite steps forward this year and wish next year's Club the best of success.

TO any one but a Framingham girl our Lighthouse would have little significance. It was to 
this place that the Lend-a-Hand Club went down from "the hill" every Tuesday afternoon to 
hear about other things besides school life. 

While Miss Perry read or talked to us, we worked on garments which were sent to the Boston 
City Hospital and Dr. Grenfel's Mission. We have also had some forceful outside speakers, such as 
Mr. Willett from the Near East Relief and Miss Martha H. Stark of the Boston Floating Hospital. 
The Question Box meetings seemed to bring us nearer to one another and we liked those the 
best, for then it was that Miss Perry answered our questions and inspired us to bring forth the best 
that was in us. 

The Hostess House was open every Sunday afternoon for the girls who stayed over the week- 
end, and they found it an enjoyable way for spending the afternoon. 
After we came from the Lighthouse, we tried to 

Look up and not down, 
Look forward and not back, 
Look out and not in, 
And Lend-a-Hanr 



Fine Arts Club 

THE Fine Arts Club started the year better than ever before, with an enrollment of three hundred 
and sixty-six enthusiastic members. 

The executive committee, with the advice and help of the faculty advisors, made out a program 
of interesting and helpful meetings, trying to have one meeting a month. 

The subject in November was "Mural Paintings." The club was fortunate enough to secure 
Mr. Vesper George to deliver this lecture. 

In December, the subject of the meeting was "Appropriate Costumes for Various Occasions." 
The speaker of the evening was Mrs. Amidon. 

The Degree Seniors gave a play for the February meeting. 

This has been a successful year for the club, and we hope that every member has received some- 
thing worth while from each meeting. 



Glee Club 

ANOTHER year is rushing by, and we are left bewildered and breathless by the roadside, wonder- 
ing where the time has gone. Xot half of what we planned to do is accomplished, yet we must 
face the fact that our concert with the Salem Normal girls is in the past, and the affair for which we 
worked so hard is over. 

What a cordial reception and a jolly good time the Salem girls gave us! May we never forget it! 

It is with regret that the Seniors of the club realize that the Glee Club rehearsals in Room 41, 
under the direction of Mr. Archibald, are now in our book of memories. 

With other work making urgent demands upon us, we often found it difficult to arrange our 
program so that Glee Club could be fitted in; but all who cared for it, found the time. 

How can we ever show our gratitude to Mr. Archibald for his untiring service and loyalty to 
our club? 



Mandolin Club 

THE Framingham Mandolin Club was launched upon its second year of organization, with the 
determination to follow the high standard of last year's successful club, and to increase in 
numbers and ability. The first aim was reached in the twenty girls who have played together since 
the organization in the fall. Ruth Sturdy was elected president of the club. Doris Hein has been 
the leader and Hazel White pianist. 

The Juniors have been especially interested, and by their enthusiasm we feel that there is firm 
ground for predicting years of successful Mandolin Club work ahead. 

Besides the enjoyment gained by the pleasant Thursday afternoons together, we have helped 
entertain by playing at the Y. W. C. A. Christmas bazaar, and by providing part of the program 
at the Salem and Framingham joint concert of the Musical Clubs at Salem, February seventeen. 

Framingham's "baby club" is gaining a reputation for good playing, and the members as well 
as our hearers, feel that it is indispensable as a school activity.

Harvard and Yale Game 

100K where the Crimson Banners Fly" — just look at them! Hear the 
-j tramping feet! See the radiant faces beaming under crimson tams, peaking 
over crimson ruffs! Crimson banners indeed — and all ready for a good cheer for 
their own Crimson Basketball Team! 

All in? — Well — here comes Yale — with their "Here we come! Here we come! 

" Aha! some opposition here! — a mighty army all in blue — Some more tams 

and some nifty blue ties! Harvard surely isn't going to have all the fun! — No 

crimson trimmings are needed to frame these smiling faces! How confident they 

are! — 

A hush! — Suspense! — A whistle! and — can't you hear the cheers? Can't 
you see the crimson and blue frantically greeting their teams? 

How fit they are! Husky? Well — enough so! —and — all one can hear 
are heart beats — "Everybody ready?" — referee's unnecessary question! — "Cap- 
tain Wheeler — Captain Snell? Already!" 

Whistle! - 

Zip-bang — Catch! — Speed! — Our girls surely did have it! The ball? — nowhere 
— everywhere! — Who has it — nobody — everybody! 

Two points for Harvard — Al Cody featuring! — Are there cheers? — Is Sue right 
there? We'll say so! 

Up again! — off again! Any fumbles? Never! — Yale 2 — Don't ask for Joe! 
— she's there — all arms and legs — and how they yell! 

What? — first period? Oh! what quiet! Frantically they wait for the score — 
it must be tie! — 15 : 14 — Harvard ahead! Who said a roar! — See the happy smiles! 
And Yale, too — for what is a point — just one point? 

Time out! — That is — for some — Now, Sue shows what she has been doing, 
and leads Harvard thro' a few stunts. Joe is not to be outdone — and promptly 
claims her share of the laurels with the howling bull-dogs! 


Is it possible that the crowd is wilder? If possible — 'tis so! and how they yell 
as each girl takes her place! They know what each can do! — and — hush! 

More palpitations! 

Another fifteen minutes of changing joy and agonv — how that ball flies! — Oh, 

Whistle! — and score? 24 : 22 — Harvard ahead! They're wild! Tame them 
down, Sue, and get ready for more cheers and songs — Just a minute, Joe! 


Are they still fit? — Harvard is a little concerned over Al Cody's sprained 
ankle — but there is no concern on Al's face! — 

Again, they're off! Their speed is telling on the referee — she's certainly kept 
going! — It is 2 here and 2 there! Who can be ahead! Everybody knows who 
must, but who is? — 

More time! more time! If only the 10 minutes would stretch out! We must 
get one. 

Groan! — for there's the whistle! 

Score? — The crowd is too wild to listen but — sh! — no one breathes — 31:32 — 
Yale ahead! A stampede? Nearly so! All the wild cheers not already let loose 
are out! 

Yale have Captain Snell and her team almost on their shoulders. 

Harvard held 'Rene with her fighting crew in the center of a roaring mob — 
again we say! What does a point or two matter! Everyone doesn't beat! —

H. A. Senior History 

THE remarkable career of the class of Nineteen Twenty-Two began in the fall 
of '19. Do you remember, you people of 1922, September 9, 1919? Who of 
you Seniors will ever forget that first night — how we gazed with awe and admi- 
ration at the superior Upper Classmen (wonder if they did this year!!), and with 
curiosity at our new classmates. 

Then came the day, we had looked forward to, since first we had heard of the 
school — the day of the Harvard and Yale game. To say Harvard was thrilled 
when she won, is putting it mildly. 

On Hallowe'en, we were formally introduced to the tunnel, with all its spooks, 
ghosts and "creepy" things. We never realized May Hall was so far from Peirce 
beforehand we hardly recognized the hall under its "most attractive" decorations. 

Having taken many trips to Norway, personally conducted by Miss Sewall, 
we felt perfectly capable of packing our bags, preparatory to leaving for home for 
our Christmas vacation. Many were the bags that contained those precious tea 
aprons, with the yards of hemming, which have proved so valuable at Proms. 

We came back exultant over the festivities of the holidays, but our high spirits 
were soon squelched when we learned that everything "was due," and we settled 
down to good hard work. 

Thankfully we watched the removal of the unsightly ruins of Old Normal 
Hall and the preparations for the building of a new dormitory in its place. Well 
do we remember that bitter cold morning of January 5, when we crowded around 
on every available plank, most of them more or less shaky, while Miggie, in behalf 
of the Senior Class, presented and laid the corner stone of the present Horace 
Mann Hall. 

As the new term's work progressed, many gatherings were often accompanied 
by the dropping of crochet hooks, as we diligently made "Mile-a-Minute," at a 
much lesser speed, for our regulation combinations. 

Soon followed petticoats, with yards and yards of lace and tucks, "batters 
and doughs continued," work in the garden, and many entertainments, including 
the memorable Stunt Show, with the faculty band, "Eliza Comes to Stay," Tech 
and Salem concerts and our Junior May Carnival. 

Almost before we could realize it, plans for the summer were in progress. After 
the excitement of Field Day, and the assignments of rooms in the dormitory, we 
turned to packing our trunks, only to find that our possessions had increased since 
September. After much struggling and tugging, we succeeded in fastening and 
locking them, and started them on their homeward journey. 

The next fall, how proud and all-powerful we felt to be Middle Juniors, with 
the privilege of looking down on the Juniors, and how haughtily we swaggered 
up old Normal Hill, to our rooms in Peirce and Horace Mann Halls! 

Then began the joys (?) of unpacking from basement to third, and storing 
all our belongings in our "2 by 4" rooms, meeting the new girls and "our Juniors," 
and investigating those intriguing corridors of the new dormitory. Also the thrills 
of hanging our carefully-made curtains and draperies, only to find them much too 



It did not take us long to become acquainted with the cookery laboratory 
and supply closet, also the jar of ancient marshmallows. Soon there was a trail 
of jelly from the X. P. K. to the chemistry laboratory, and many were the hours 
we spent making charts, the accumulation of all our knowledge. 

Never did we realize how hard hardwood is, until we spent hours on our knees 
in our rooms or in the corridors, making our skirt and shirtwaist drafts. 

All too quickly the Xmas vacation passed, and once more we bent all our 
faculties to the completion of our first term's work. 

Then came the long-waited-for Prom. The air was thick with preparations, 
and everyone was as excited as could be. What fun, on that glad day, as we 
hurried down to the village, with the necessary linen to make the beds up French 
style or worse. We all agreed it was assuredly the best Prom ever, when tired 
but happy we went to bed, to dream of next year, when we should give a Prom 
that would surpass even this one of 1921. 

Soon tailored shirtwaists made their appearances, and then the "handmade" 
waists. Many were the hours we spent hemstitching, tucking and sewing entre- 
deux and lace. 

On February 22, a Stunt Show was held in the gym, for the purpose of raising 
money for the purchasing of a toboggan. Will you ever forget Miss Carden as 
a flapper, and Miss Sutcliffe as a vampire? 

Do you ever see a box of Page and Shaw's candy, or a loaf of Ward's bread, 
without remembering the field trips in Chemistry, and seeing the factories, and 
how each of their products were made! 

The "Little Gray Lady" proved to be a most captivating lady, and the play 
was a big success. 

One morning at Chapel, which will always remain in our minds, is that morning 
when Dr. Chalmers told us that Framingham had been granted the power of con- 
ferring the degree of Bachelor of Education on its four-year H. A. graduates. 
However, our joy was not long lived, for we also learned at this time, that our 
friend, advisor and instructor, Mr. Howe, was to leave us in June, to become a 
director at Pratt Institute. We wish him the success he so well deserves, and how 
we envy Pratt! 

House cleaning began in earnest the week before our April vacation. Floors 
were scrubbed, windows washed, walls cleaned, desk and bureau drawers made 
orderly, all our clothes huddled into as little space as possible, and covered with 
sheets or newspapers; in fact, every bit of femininity removed. Why? Because 
the esteemed superintendents were to hold a conference at F. N. S. during our 
vacation week. 

Only May and June left! Theses made their appearances in Chemistry, 
covering all kinds of special topics. Special cooking for our exhibitions was the 
next feature, and only too glad we were, when the signal was given, to clean up. 

Mid the hustle and the bustle of packing trunks and boxes, and cleaning our 
rooms, we said good-bye, and left for "Home Sweet Home." 

Then after the summer of 1921 had flown by on the wings of the wind, we of 
1922 were amazed to find ourselves truly Seniors (with a large capital S). But we soon 
became accustomed to the "new honors come upon us," and rapidly became models of 
perfection in Household Administration and Practice Teaching by the Project Method! 



The first surprise to many of us, was to find that the rooms and corridors in 
Crocker Hall had all been painted the same tone — buff. How we have tried to 
keep the walls just as clean and fresh looking as possible for next year's Seniors, 
and the next year's Seniors and so on! 

How good it was to see all our old friends again, and so many Juniors, who 
soon became our friends, too! And do you remember the fun we had at the first 
social event on Friday the "Get-Acquainted" Party. 

Excitement ran high those first few days of school, until the climax was reached 
in our teaching assignments. Many were the alarm clocks set for early hours, to 
awaken the owners or borrowers, for early breakfast! And how important we felt 
when leaving the dining room, to stop on the platform and find our packed lunch. 
How many times we packed and repacked our students' bags, lest something would 
be forgotten, most of all our precious teaching outlines. 

Meanwhile, like busy bees, you of "B" division unearthed the mysteries of 
Crocker kitchen and all that goes with it. How carefully you on cook shift planned 
your week's menus, every Tuesday night, only to change it because of market 
conditions, left overs, etc. Many would be the tales, Crocker kitchen would tell 
if only she could speak, but who does not know of Mary Walsh's using sal soda 
to freeze the ice cream! 

Hats!! Paper hats, wire hats, and real fabric hats, dress forms padded here 
and there to exact measurements, paper patterns, dresses, both silk and wool, 
petri dishes, exposed in unheard-of places and theses all made their appearances, 
much to our own curiosity, as well as that of the lower classmen. 

Many were the hours we spent in trying to understand the Vocational Method 
of teaching, the number of steps to be given in presenting a lesson, and the dif- 
ference between the lesson subject and its unit. 

The Hallowe'en party was, once more, the success it always is, and then came 
our last Christmas party. How hard you of "B" division worked to give us of "A," 
a royal good time. We shall always hold it as one of the happiest memories of 
our Senior year. How we bundled up to defy the zero weather, before we started 
out Christmas caroling. Did chocolate and crackers and cakes ever taste as good 
as when on our return we feasted on them! 

Back again! With notebooks and "quizzes," and everything due, the few 
weeks of the first term passed rapidly by. Last sewing and cooking classes were 
taught, while the last meal in Crocker was served to the girls of "B" division. But 
on Monday, the work began again, with a new corps of girls, determined to make 
a better record than those preceding them. 

Spring hats arrived on the scene, and the new work was varied by the spirited 
class meetings conducted by Mac, concerning such all momentous questions as 
committees for the Prom, plans for class day and graduation, the Glee Club con- 
certs, and many interesting lectures in the Hall. 

Thus the year is all too quickly drawing to a close, and graduation — that red- 
letter day, on all our calendars, approaches. Now, as we are about to start out 
upon another different and broader highway of life and education, let us go coura- 
geously and fearlessly onward, not forgetful of our past three years at F. N. S., 
and ever mindful of its motto "Live to the Truth." 






Regular Senior History 

SHE was coming up from South Framingham on the electric car. Who was 
she? Why, just one lonesome, very excited miss on her way to the Framingham 
Normal School, on September 14, 1920. 

A very learned-looking young lady sitting beside her recognized her as a new- 
comer and said, "Watch for a high water tower on the hill, then you will know that 
you're most there." 

Finally, it came in view, and shortly afterward she was tugging her suitcase, 
camera, and other things she had forgotten to pack, up the hill, past May Hall 
and Crocker Hall into Peirce Hall living room. 

She stood in line with what seemed to her some thousand-and-one other girls, 
all more or less frightened, and wondering how, how she could ever tell one from 

Waves of noise, just noise, rose from one end of the living room to the other, 
and then she had the impression of a large, many windowed dining room, as she 
was alternately shoved and pushed into place. Thus endeth the first lesson. 

The next day began the real work of life — that of assembling and getting into 
line the many and varied courses of study. But the classes of the day were soon 
over, and she received pleasant impressions of the teachers who were to become 
her real friends. 

Her room was in Horace Mann Hall, which was "in the making" as it were. 
Of course, there was unpacking to do. Up and down those flights of stairs she went 
in a vain effort to remove everything from her trunk in the basement to her room 
on third floor before night. 

For the first week, everything was all strange and bewildering, but by the 
end of the week, she was one of a crowd of fellow-beings as lonesome as she was, 
who were only too glad to stick together and make practical the saying, "There 
is safety in numbers." 

The first Friday night at school, she went to a party given to the Juniors by 
the Upper Classmen. Wasn't it fun to dance with all the Seniors, to be introduced 
to every one, and feel that you really belonged to the school. 

Then came a bevy of teas and receptions given to the Juniors by the Upper- 

She had a fine time at all of these. She, to tell the truth, hated tea, but it 
was fun to meet so many girls and endeavor to attach the right names to the girls 
to the ones to whom they belonged. 

Next came the rumors concerning the Hallowe'en party. Horrors, wasn't it 
going to be terrible! She just never could go through that tunnel — but go through 
she did, coming out into the gym, looking like a cross between a Bolsheveki and 
a coal heaver. She laughed 'til she cried over "Spike's" and "Snig's" funny antics. 

Then came the big event of the year — the Harvard and Yale game, which 
took place just before the Thanksgiving vacation. Yale won, and she lost a box 
ot chocolates, but she didn't mind as it was such a clean game. 



Then home for Thanksgiving, and before she could get her breath, back for 
the few weeks left before Christmas. What a wonderful time she had at the 
Christmas dinner party. Pleasant memories to carry during the vacation. 

She came back after the Christmas vacation with a firm resolve to start the 
new year right, by keeping all notebooks up to date, thereby proving herself to 
be a model scholar. 

After Christmas, work started in earnest. There were History classes, where 
she clinched every point in sight; talks on wireless telegraphy, forming a habit, 
and planning the grounds for a home; all were absorbed by her fertile brain. By 
this time, she felt quite proud of herself and her new knowledge. Many of the 
letters home told of the school work and how much she enjoyed it! 

The next big event of the year was the party that the Juniors gave to the 
Upper Classmen, in the form of a masquerade. It must have been "some party," 
as she heard a Senior say so. 

Next on the program came our spring vacation of two weeks. One week in 
which to just have a good time, and the other to observe. But the second week 
was just as much fun as the first, as she enjoyed observation. 

Many events occurred during the remainder of her first year, which developed 
her love for her Alma Mater and classmates. Commencement found her regretting 
the fact that she must see some of her friends for the last time. However, pros- 
pects of a second year at F. N. S. loomed up brightly. 


She was coming up from South Framingham on the electric car. Was she 
lonesome and frightened? She was not!! Seniors are never frightened, and she 
did not have time to be lonesome, for she was looking forward to seeing her class- 
mates of the previous year. 

It was not her luck to be in the division that went out practice teaching the 
beginning of the year. However, she listened to their tales of woe, secretly making 
note that every one of them liked teaching. When it came time for Division "B" 
to go out, she went with a stout heart, and loved teaching even better than she 
had dared hope. 

Strange as it may seem, although a "dignified" Senior, she did not feel the 
least bit older, and had just as good a time at the Harvard and Yale game as any 
of the Juniors. Again, Yale carried the honors. 

The dinner after the game was one to be remembered, with its miniature 
footballs at each plate. All too soon ended this big event of her Senior year. 

Her last year at Normal School was going fast. The work was harder, which 
means that she studied more. 

As she was brought nearer to June and Commencement, she realized that she 
really was growing up, and wondered, sometimes, what had become of the timid 
little girl of September 14, 1920. 

Now she is wondering whom she will invite to the "Man-Dance." 

Deep in her heart she is wishing that she might live over again two of the 
happiest years of her life.

Our social activities at Framingham began the Friday following the opening 
of school. The Upper Classmen gave us a "Get-Acquainted Party," asking us to 
come as boys and girls. 

Faculty and Senior Reception. 

Middle Junior Reception in the X. P. K. 

The Hallowe'en party in the form of a masquerade. Will we ever forget our

Field Day was the last social event of our Junior year. Of all the sports 
that the Juniors entered, we only made one point! 


The "Get-Acquainted Party" given by the Upper Classmen, of which we were 

Being Middle Juniors, we gave a reception to the Juniors in the X. P. K. 

The Middle Junior Hallowe'en Party in Peirce Hall laundry. We had every- 
thing that goes with a real Hallowe'en — including a skeleton — from Room 3. 

Mock-Man Dance, the night before the Harvard-Yale game. Some of our 
faculty and students certainly made stunning looking men. 

Harvard-Yale game. Yale won the honors once more. 

The Y. W. C. A. gave an entertainment, consisting of a French Costume 
Recital given by Bessie Talbot Salmon. 

Later in the year, the Y. W. C. A. gave a musical play called, "Mousme of the 
Toy Shop." These entertainments were to raise money to send the girls to Maqua. 

This year was Framingham's turn to entertain the Salem girls for Salem- 
Framingham joint Glee Club concert. It was an excellent concert, being a credit 
to Mr. Archibald — the leader. 




The "Little Gray Lady," our own Middle Junior Play, was given under the 
direction of Miss Kingman. 

The greatest social event of all our life at Framingham,thus far, was the "Middle 
Junior Prom." Will any Middler who went forget it! 


Of course, the first event of this year was that given by the Y. W. C. A. — the 
"Get-Acquainted Party." 

Faculty reception to the Seniors, Middle Juniors, and Juniors. 

Still we have another Hallowe'en Party. Of course, it was the best one ever, 
because we were the ones to give it. Will we ever forget the blackened faces of 
our Junior friends! 

Christmas time again — which fact spells a never-to-be-forgotten party. This 
year it was our privilege as Seniors to go out Caroling. Nothing but an abundance 
of school spirit could have kept us out singing until midnight, while the thermometer 
registered several degrees below zero. Was it worth it? Ask any Senior. 

Commuters' Entertainment to raise money for a lunch room. For several years 
the school has lacked a lunch room, to be used by those girls who travel back and 
forth each day. As the number of girls has increased, it was deemed advisable to 
have a lunch room., so that the girls might have something hot to eat with their 
cold lunches. Through the co-operation of Dr. Chalmers, Mr. Ried and members 
of the Faculty, the room between the Handwork room and Room 41 has been 
set apart as the commuters' lunch room. An entertainment was given by the 
Commuters to raise money to make practical this idea. 

Musical Clubs of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 

Pop Concert was an entertainment given by the classes of 1917, 1918, 1919 
to raise money for the shrubbery to be put around the Whittemore Memorial 

Two Monday Assembly periods we had concerts secured by Mr. Archibald. 
The first was "The Constellation String Quartet." The second was a trio con- 
sisting of piano, violin and cello. 

The Y. W. C. A. gave a musical entertainment of Indian Lore and Tribal 
Melodies by Bessie Talbot Fosgate — Soprano. Mrs. Fosgate was dressed in In- 
dian costume, which added to the beauty of the concert. 

The A'Kempis Club gave an entertainment, consisting of two short plays, 
"The Flower Shop" and "Sham." 

All laundry in the lost box was sold at auction to raise money for the Dial. 
Marion Marble is a born auctioneer. 

To raise money for a new stage curtain and scenery, the followingeventswereheld : 
A silver tea in Crocker Parlors. 

A basketball game between Seniors — Middle Juniors. 
A stunt show in the Assembly Hall. 

The Middle Junior Play this year was "Happiness," by J. Hartley Manners. 

Another big event of our life here at school is the Senior Prom. Our one 
formal dance! 

Other events too numerous to mention will live long in our memory. 






Many things that happen 
Thru the busy day 
Help to give diversion, 
In a very harmless way. 

Thru these little pleasantries 
Foolish tho they be, 
We hope you all will realize 
Are but mere frivolity. 

Each one who s mentioned in the grind 
Has helped make up the Dial ; 
And remember it s a talent 
To make other people smile!

When the Shifters Struck Framingham 

Should you ask me whence the flurry, 
Whence the mystery, and the scurry, 

Whence the laughter, and the chatter, 
Whence the noise and all the clatter, 

I would answer, listen to me, 
And a tale I'll tell to thee — 

How the shifters came to school, 
Breaking many a steadfast rule, 

How Gertrude came to class one day 

And brought her teddy, with which to play, 

Helen took her doll so fair 

And carried it with "oh, such care." 

Now this was quite a stunt you know 
For Serious Seniors to undergo. 

Mildred carried a picture — most dear, 
Of whom? I couldn't tell you here. 

And wasn't it just the strangest sight 
To see the girls with hair back tight, 

Without e'en a puff or curl 

That generally marks the present day girl. 

Helen came down to breakfast one morn 
Dressed? With her bathrobe and slippers on. 

And stood up straight and very tall 
And read out loud the Senior roll call. 

But then, for fear she might catch cold, 
Dot brought a shawl to about her fold. 

One night Miss Carden surprised each one, 
For up she got and a song she sung. 

But what amused us most of all 
Was Foster's song in the lecture hall.

As Usual 

I had to go to "Fram" to-day, and I didn't get out 'till four, 
So I took my coat and hat to class and sat right near the door. 

But when the class was over, my pocketbook was gone, 
So I hurried from the classroom and found it in the dorm. 

And then I flew right down the hill, without a backward look, 
I found a button off my glove and my fur without a hook. 

Before I reached the bottom, the car went out of sight, 
So I turned up into High street and ran with all my might. 

I caught the car at the Centre. The conductor came for the fare, 
But looking thru my pocketbook, I found no tickets there. 

I handed out a nickel, but discovered it wouldn't do, 
I was told by the conductor, I really needed two. 

I got out at Robbin's Drug Store, for my first thot was for sweets, 
When it comes to college ices, I find "Robbins" can't be beat. 

Then I ambled down the street again and stopped to look at hats 
And fancy work, and birthday cards, and shoes, and gay cravats. 

One stop I made at Sanborn's to buy of silk — one spool. 

The clerk asked the usual question, "Are you from the Normal School?" 

I had to go into Cokells, a studio so fine, 

That when you go for Photos, they are ready right on time. 

When I got to Bates and Holdsworth, my memory went wrong, 
And I didn't know what I wanted: a box of tacks — or a song? 

I had to have a hair net, but when I reached the track, 

A long freight train was passing by, so the gateman kept me back. 

I went on up to Woolworth's and had to wait, you bet, 
Until the clerk was ready to sell me a double-mesh net. 

I waited so long at Woolworth's that the car for the Centre had gone, 
Now, I should be late for dinner! I had missed the very last one. 

By this time I'd developed a feeling that told me it was time to eat, 
So I opened the door to the Wellworth and hunted around for a seat. 

Before very long I discovered that in Wellworth's you wait on yourself, 

So I put on a tray, what I wanted from the food they displayed on the shelf. 

And after my supper I'd eaten, I found myself out in the air, 
And looking up I discovered a friend of mine standing there. 

He asked me to walk to the Centre and without a thot I replied, 

"But it isn't allowed while in Normal to have a young man by your side." 

All alone I came back to the Campus, arriving at one minute of seven, 

After a trip down to Framingham the "Dorm" seemed like a wee bit of heaven.

The Night Before Sunday 

'Twas the night before Sunday when all thru the hall 
Not a student was stirring, not even Miss Hall; 

Miss Knight was on duty, so stiff, and so stern; 
Eagerly listening, some scandal to learn. 

The girls were nestled, all snug in their rooms, 
With the exception of one who intended to spoon. 

Miss Knight in the office, 

Miss Hall in her suite, 

Had just settled down, their notebooks to keep. 

When out on the porch there rose such a clatter 

That we opened the window to see what was the matter, 

The moon shining down on the porch below 
Showed us a girl greeting her beau. 

We crept to the staircase and with our heads bent 
Watched, while into the parlor they went. 

The lights were ablaze as bright as day 
Much to the couple's great dismay. 

For what's the fun of trying to spark 
If you can't be in a place that is dark? 

He whistled, she sang, they talked together 

Of something in common — but not the weather. 

And then in a twinkling, out went the light, 
Ought she to tiptoe for Miss Knight? 

Happy were they when the light went out 
Till she looked at the clock and began to pout. 

(For nine-thirty is, the appropriate time 
To bid good night to friends of this kind) 

In walked the matron saying 

"Just what does this mean? 

Such conduct as this I've never yet seen." 

She tried her best, it all to explain 
But alas and alack it was all in vain 

The fellow discouraged about to depart, 
Wanted a kiss from his little sweetheart. 

But, with a look at the matron he turned on his heel 
And made a bee line for his automobile. 

With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore, author of 
"The Night Before Christmas."

Then starts her mechanical pencil 
Her chemistry chart to write. 
Then starts her mechanical needle, 
Which makes the dress you know. 
Then powders her nose and gaily goes 
To see a picture show. 

Notice for Sewing Rooms 

"As ye sew, so shall ye also rip." 


Who's Who Among The H. A. Seniors 
Who Is Our 


Caroline McQueston got first place for that, but 
Marian Graves wasn't far behind. 


"Mac" got that also, and again Marian was a close 


Mil Russell took the honors in both of these, having 
behind her Ruth Payzant and Biddie Abbott. 


"Mac" rightly deserves this place above all others. 


Who fills this part better than Beth Darling, V. 
Davis? Not quite. 


We always have thought that Biddie Abbott should 
have this, and so she did. 


We can all do that, but we laid the honors at Mil 
Russell's feet. 


Well, Harriette is Russ' roommate, so we think she 
wins, but Al Lane receives "honorable mention." 


Ask any one on the "Dial Staff," and they'd say 
"Al" Cody. Nobody disputes this; but Esther Murray 
and "Al" Lane are clever. 


Landslide vote for "Rene" Wheeler. 


Well, Blanche Boyle is painstaking, but Irene 
McEvoy is more fitted to take the part. 


Almost everyone is at times, but here's to Edith 
Skroder first, and Ruth Sturdy second. 


May we ask, "Who ever saw 'Li' Paul anything but 
'perfectly gowned.' " Beth Hutchinson has clothes 
that make us envious. 


Nobody can take that from Peg Holmes. 


"Eddie" Slaiger has no one ahead of her. 


May Byron is "Eddie's" running mate, but talking 
doesn't convince her, once her mind is made up. 


Beth Darling would naturally hold first place, but 
it seems as tho Al Cody weren't far behind. 


Effie Goddard always has her little joke, but would 
Grace McDermott be called a "Gertie Gloom." 


Ruth Payzant is second to none. 


Helen Doane and Harriet Murdock are the happiest 
and most optimistic. 


We have lots of talent, but Marian Graves has the 
most. "Al" Lane, "Russ" and Sue Paige are often 
found at the piano if that's a sign. 


Nobody competed with Ruth Sturdy that we can 


Fran Goodwin, of course. Grace McDermott can 
hold her own in this line, too. 


As a decorator - 

'Al" Lane. 


Dot Prentiss. There can be but one to hold this 


Was there any one voted on beside Alice Day. No! 


Another landslide vote for Betty Carlson. 


We at Crocker think at once of "Floppy" Hoeh. 


Blanche Boyle's notebooks — that's all that's neces- 
sary. "Puss" Drew is neat, too, and whoever saw Mae 
Byron's room "upside down"? 


We think Marian Graves is, but can you imagine 
any one saying that "Puss" Drew is homely? 


We all like to bluff at times, but Beth Hutchinson 
has the highest record and Betty Carlson next. 


"Mac" by all means — but how about Marian 
Graves, Effie Goddard and "Lib" Davis? 


"Vee" Davis took it well when we said that she is. 


Rene Wheeler comes first, shortly followed by 


Pauline Babb! Unanimous vote. 


No one came any where near Freda Flanders for 
number of votes, but "Vee" Davis, "Russ" and "Lib" 
Davis were listed.

Hoo's Hoo Among The Regulars 


The honors go to Irene Barber as the most capable, 
still we have many capable people in our midst. 


Of course, we all knew that Al Jameson would hit 
the high spot here. 

Who but Dot Cahill was voted to be the best looking. 


This honor was rightly given to Esther Polley. 

Our best all-round girl is Jennie Johnson, but Esther 
Austin is a close second. 


Landslide vote for Agnes Coleman. How could 
there be any question after watching her play basket- 

Wake up, Rose Caron, you have monopolized the 
votes for the sleepiest. 

Jane Broadhurst got first place here. 

No one could possibly rival Peg Zilch, as best 
borrower and Katherine Cheney, as best lender. 


Mabel Klein and Evelyn McNerney were close 
competitors for this honor. Mabel took first place. 

Who said Bessie Upham? But, anyway, she has 
hosts of friends. 

Lucile Snow holds this place; however, Cal Merrill 
is not so far behind. 

It was already settled before we cast our votes that 
Alice Bushnell should occupy this position. 

Lillian Martin — almost unanimous. 


It looks as if popular opinion were for Edith Rives, 
but can we pass by Bessie Upham's name without 

We didn't even have to vote for the funniest — we 
all knew Mary Sullivan would get that. 

With so many brilliant stars in the horizon, it was 
difficult to decide who should have first place. Finally. 
we settled upon Laura Ames. 

Who said Sophie Adelson? We all did. 

Here's one we had to vote on. Helen Hathaway 
headed the list. 

Well, Blanche Cormier had no competition for this 
position. But it is not as bad as it sounds, Blanche. 

Hester Mattfield. Enough said! 


One guess! Pauline Ackers! 

No dispute. Who but Mickey Gould could fill this 
place the best? But there are others not far behind. 

We have many talented musicians, but Bea Brown 
came first. 

All honors to you, Marion Gaffney, as the best 

Edith Ormes is second to none. Edith, did you ever 
really waste a second of your valuable time? 

No dispute over these honors when placed at the 
feet of Katherine Burns. 

We have Jerry Stephenson representing Faculty 
Pet, but Harriet Holman pulled a few votes. 

Frances Mullins, we think, is pretty, but we must 
mention Trudie Murdock. 

Absolutely no doubt. — Unanimous vote for Jessie 

Harriet Holman walks off with all honors for being 
the most deliberate. 


Here we have Dot Christopher in first place, but 
we claim to have many abounding in real wit. 

Of course, Trudie Murdock would head the list, 
but we find Jerry Stephenson coming second. 

We give this place to Cal Merrill, with Lucile Snow- 
as a close second. Rivals again. 

"Cleanliness is next to Godliness" is Caroline Breed's 
motto — so she lives 'up to it, and is our neatest girl. 

Of course, we are all man haters, but Ruth Rodan 
stands out as being the one to admit it. 


"I woke before the morning, 

I was happy all the day." 
We dedicate this to Doris Hathaway, the happiest 
in our class. 


Another landslide for Sadie Martin. 


Who could it be but Marguerite Murphy? 


Adeline Vara! No question! 


Al Lawrence, naturally! 


Landslide again for Dot Chace. 

( So )

Why don't you dress to make yourself quite stunning 

By using puffs and curls with all your might, 

Why do you give us "D" which means we're flunking 

And of the higher gradings lose all sight, 

Why don't you dance and get a craze for dancing? 

Be young again just for a single night! 

Why don't you master arts like slang and jazzing 
Forgetting all about your priggish mien, 
So we'll no longer have to listen to your razzing 
Then you'll a lot more like us seem! 

Why don't you sometimes meet without discussing 
The sins of evildoers of the school. - ' 
Why don't you do away with all this fussing 
By just erasing all the rules. 

Why don't you follow out these good suggestions, 
Perhaps you find you can not tell. 
But we can tell you why you wouldn't do it — 
Because we wouldn't like vou half as well!!

A Dialogue 


ONE night at Summer School there was a 'rustle' on the piazza." 
"Yes, and immediately Helen Ballou out the candle and Priscilla Drew the 


"Only Ruth, Sturdy as an oak, wasn't frightened." 

"Mac Questioned the Paige as to the cause of the rustling." 

Sue answered, "Oh, that's only Lib Davis sitting on a Cushing." 

"Ken wants to Marian Eldridge,"said Fran. "Good, win he will, if it is possible." 

"The girls had decided by this time that the rustle on the piazza was only 


"With whom?" 

"Carls' on, of course!" 

"But Agnes, the class detective, who really Connors everything (even Mary) 

found a clue." 

"Yes, she said that the Russell on the piazza was just Mildred eating Helen 

Doane's pills." 

Everyone yelled, "She's a Dyer now; the next thing we'll have to do is to 


"This doesn't look like Crocker when we were at Summer School." 
"No, but it's been Weeks and Weeks and Weeks since we were here together." 
"There was so much Meier around here we had to have a new coat of paint." 
"Did you know that Floppy in "B." Division has a teaching position already?" 
"No, what is it?" 
"Teaching the Framingham boys how to Hoeh, and Mildred's Flye-ing around 

to help her." 

"Gretchen is demonstrating William's Armstrong heaters now. Did you 

know it? 

"No, I hadn't heard, but you know each of us girls has a Knight now." 
"Well, all I'll say is, if you want a good time, hireaHall, but be sure it's Crocker!" 


At 8 P. M. while Ma and Pa 
Helped entertain with Sis, 
Both Ray and Beth in distant seats 
Sat far apart like this. 

At 9 P. M. as Pa withdrew 
And sought his room upstairs, 
The lovers found some photographs 
And nearer brought their chairs. 

At 10 P. M. Mama decamped 
And then! Ye Gods! What bliss!! 
These lovers sat 'til nearly one 



Pertinent Queries 

Do ships have eyes when they go to see? 

Are there springs in the ocean's bed? 
Does the jolly tar flow from a tree? 

Does a river lose its head? 

Are fishes crazy when they go insane? 

Can an old hen sing her lay? 
Would you take a pill for a windowpane? 

Or mend the break of day? 

What sort of a vegetable is a policeman's beat? 

Is a newspaper white when it's read? 
Is a baker busted when he kneads his dough? 

Is an undertaker's business dead? 

Would a wall-paper store make a good hotel 

(Because of the boarders there)? 
Would you paint a rabbit on a bald man's head 

Just to give him a bit of hare? 

Would you pay a policeman with silver coin? 

For nickels aren't made for coppers — 
If a grass widow married a grass widower 

Would their children be grasshoppers? 

If you ate a square meal would the corners hurt? 

Can you dig with the ace of spades? 
Would you throw a rope to a drowning man 

Just to give a lemonade?

Bathroom Specialties 

I hear, Fran, you said bacteria are animals 

In your hurry to finish before the bell. 

Gee, Al! I wish my teeth were like yours 

So that I, too, could give shower baths galore. 

What's that I hear about killing two birds with one stone? 

It's something that I'd really hate to own. 

A basket, a person, both in the tub, 

One being soaked, the other scrubbed. 

A moral example nothing less or more, 

A girl brushing her teeth over the floor. 

And Al — who is a good sort o' fellar 

Took into the tub with her an umbrella. 

What would you think of a girl who when on starting to bed, 

Put her shoe trees in her slippers instead. 

But that's not as bad, nor half as sad, 

As the experience that Marian had. 

Harriette woke up in the middle of the night 

For in her window shone a light. 

She tiptoed gently up the stairs 

To see what was happening there. 

Here she found Marian sound asleep. 

And Harriette well — she was ready to weep. 

Then another case I bring to mind 

'Twas just last night at half-past nine 

When Dot decided to go to bed, 

Picked up her lamp shade — instead 

Of wash cloth, towel and soap. 

Not 'till she met a girl did she discover the joke. 

Hey! who's got the scru — 

"Girls, it's ten o'clock, 

Time for all this nonsense to stop." 

Babe G. (to mother): — "I have worn short skirts all my life and I am not 
going to wear them any longer." 

Russ: — "May I use your soap?" 
Harriet: — "Why the formality?" 
Russ: — "Couldn't find it!" 

Suttie: — "I sleep with 'Kibbie' every night." 
Aunt Lil: — "That's very unhealthy." 
Suttie: — "I know, but he's used to it now." 





Untimely Hints for the Newlywed 

Witnessed by a Crockerite 
Meat Cookery 

When having roast lamb for dinner, it is advisable to have some meat loaf 
left over from the night before to use when the lamb isn't done. 

Keep a few yards of link frankfurts on hand, in case the pot roast isn't done. 


Muffins can be made much nicer by adding 1% quarts of sugar to the ingredi- 
ents, instead of 1^ cups. 

A very delicate flavor may be given to coffee if it is strained through a greasy 
bag which has been used in soap making. 

In making fruit gelatine, use fresh pineapple, and after unmoulding, leave in 
a warm place before serving. 

Tomato bisque can be given a very unusual flavor by leaving the white sauce 
over the flame until it adheres to the bottom of the kettle. Scotch soup! 

When the recipe calls for x /i tsp. pepper, it is well to add 2 tsp. to insure a 
good flavor. 

Sal soda is much more efficient for freezing ice cream. It may require more 
time, but it gives a very smooth product. 

If one wishes her floor to be much cleaner, a milk bath is advisable. After 
this is done, it is well to tip the coal hod over. Bear in mind that you should wear 
your rubbers. 


I held her pretty little hand, 

I loved that girl to beat the band, 

Her daddy loved her even more

He kicked me through the old front door, 



Dr. M: — "If you call a calf's tail a leg, how many legs would a calf have?" 
Miss F: — "Five."

First Flea: — "Been on a vacation?" 
Second Flea: — "No, on a tramp." 





'Twas right during chapel, and all through the hall, 
We were solemnly chanting the prayer one and all; 

Our heads were all bowed with a reverent air, 
Which is always expected at such an affair; 

When suddenly just in the doorway there loomed 
A fat yellow dog; we were hopelessly doomed. 

He glanced not to right, and he glanced not to left, 
Of manners he seemed to be wholly bereft. 

His poise ranked perfection, his courage was great, 
He tripped proudly along with a most assured gait. 

He approached the first occupied faculty chair, 
Then halting a moment he sniffled the air; 

And thus he passed onward with a sniffle at each, 
While the victims looked at him as if to beseech 

The small beast not to linger, to pass by without noise 
To the next nervous female, who was striving for poise. 

Then he suddenly found himself just at the feet 
Of his mortified mistress, their loving eyes meet, 

His stump of a tail waves a cheery "Hello, 

I've found you at last, though I'll say I was slow." 

Then he opened his mouth and proceeded to talk 
In his native dog language, but alas came a shock, 

While yet he was talking, his mistress arose 
And grabbing the end of his proud little nose 

Led him silently, solemnly back to the door, 
He was surely disgraced as never before. 

The future looked black to his little dog heart; 

What he thought had been clever had not even been smart. 

What happened we leave to the reader to guess, 
But the little dog knows 'twas a horrible mess. 







Klondike, Septuber 
Soktober, No Vonder. 
My dear Cousin : — ■ 

I take my pen in -hand to let you know that we don't live where we did, but 
we live where we have moved. Your uncle, whom you love so well, is dead. Hoping 
this will find you just the same. When he died he left you fifteen thousand dollars. 
We will send it to you just as quick as we can find it. He also willed you fifty 
thousand dollars you are to get when Dawson City dies. They don't know the 
cause of his death, only that all his breath leaked out. They gave up all hopes 
of saving him when he died. Your aunt is also dead. When she died she left 
fifty thousand dollars sewed up in her bustle. What a lot of money to leave be- 
hind. We have all got the mumps, we are having a swell time. I sent your black 
overcoat, and to save express charges, I cut off the buttons. You will find them 
in the inside pocket. Mother is making sausages. All the neighbors are looking 
out for their dogs. Father is not in the pocketbook business any more. He has 
gone in the stocking business instead. They say there is more money in stockings 
these days than in pocketbooks. Your girl, whom you thought was dead, is alive 
in Hell-ena, Montana. Her father said that if you don't send him that forty 
cents you owe him, he will scratch your nails out with his eyes. The Damn family 
is still living at the same place. Old man Damn is sick. The old lady Damn is 
sick. The whole Damn family is sick. As I have nothing more to write, I will 
close — my face. 

P. S. If you don't get this, let me know, and I will write again. 


Oh, Alice Cody was sweet and coy, 
And she had bow-legged feet; 
This is the song she would sing all night, 
"Oh, the left is left, and right is right, 
But never the twain will meet!" 


The Three Bears 

ONCE upon a time, there was a mother bear and her three little bears, who 
lived way up on a mountain. One day early in the spring, Mrs. Bear decided 
to take the three little bears down the mountain to give them baths in the brook. 

They arrived at the brook safely, and Mrs. Bear put the first little bear up 
on the rock to wash him. 

"What! no soap?" said the little bear. 

"No, no soap." 

After washing him, she put the second little bear up on the reck. 

"What!! no soap?" said the second little bear. 

"No, no soap." 

Then she put the third little bear on the rock. 

"What!!! no soap?" said the third little bear. 

"No, no soap."

'Tis Said That 

ONCE there was a "little piece of work" with "perfect posture," which was "brows- 
ing around," trying at once to be "definite, accurate, concise, concrete and 
brief." It was "striving" to develop "unity and coherence" along a "certain line." It 
took all its "philosophy of life" to "cull out" "valuable material," and still not 
confuse "clinching the point" with dulling the "pedagogical point," but still en- 
deavoring to "see the child point of view." By "seizing every opportunity," and 
"working from the known to the unknown," it made a "telling diagram," which, 
however, "lacked color." It soon lost courage and wailed, "I hear a noise, there 
it is again," "snipped a little hole," dropped its "right attitude" and "subsided."

A Grammatical Error 

Paul The Great 

SO Paul is noted for being a great Walker, he started one Day down a beautiful 
Lane toward Williams town. After he came out in the town, he went around 
a Connor, where stood a magnificant Marble Hall. Having previously heard of 
this place, he decided to go in to look around. In order to get full information, 
he sent a Prentiss to Page the interior Draper, who came and willingly showed him 
the different kinds of draperies from old Egypt to new America. Due to the fact 
that he showed much interest, the lady Drew several pictures illustrating the fine 
points of drapery. So it was noon when he left the Hall. He went around a couple 
of Connors to Childs, where he got his lunch, in spite of an annoying Flye, and it 
must be added that it was far from being Still in there. 

Paul spends his Winters in China. He delights in going thro a certain Rice 
Field, which makes a charming Russell, with a Darling Chinese girl. Finding out 
one Day that this little girl was an orphan, he decided to take her to the Murray- 
Goddard Orphanage. The attendant asked him to stay to supper so as to learn 
something about the place. While talking with the children in the early evening, 
he noticed numerous Sparks shooting out from the roof. He tried to keep the 
children from being alarmed, but many of them had hysterical Fitts. The fire 
department was called, and the small blaze was put out shortly, so the children 
were finally calmed down and went to bed. Paul being much taken with the 
place, said, when leaving, that he would see about getting a Carpenter to fix the 
roof in the morning. He tried to think of things he could do for the amusement 
of the children; and besides donating money to be used in general, he gave the six 
Burroughs which they love to ride. In this and many other ways, Paul has proved 
to be a great Benefactor.

Little Normal Students 

We, as little Juniors came to Framingham to stay, 
To learn a lot of methods in the most professional way, 
To leave behind our childishness, improve in manners, too, 
Acquire a lot of dignity before our course was through; 
But at the dormitory, when the study hour was done, 
We sat around on desks and chairs and had the mostest fun, 
A'listenin' to the wildest yarns that each girl told about. 
But the matron will get you 
Ef yer 



An' once there was a little girl who wouldn't go to bed, 
An' when the matron come around with noiseless tread 
She saw a striped figure dancing wildly 'round the floor, 
An' a neck an' head extended from almost every door, 
An' that girl got scolded fierce for bein' up 'n around about, 
An' the matron will get you 
Ef yer 



An' so, we want to say to those who come here to our school : 
You'd best consider carefully before you break a rule; 
You'd better heed the faculty an' matrons when they speak, 
An' walk the straight an' "narrer" path; be dutiful an' meek; 
An' help your weaker neighbor, when temptation makes her doubt; 
Or the matron will get you

Elizabeth Knight, President 
Priscilla Twombly, Secretary 

Hazel White, Vice-President 
Frances Bowes, Treasurer 

SPEAKING of a man without a country, the fourth-year class has been a class without a classroom. When first we 
wandered back to F. N. S., we numbered eight strong. A week or so later, another recruit entered our ranks, and 
we became nine strong. Then, after a month, we gathered our tenth recruit, and thus constituted the degree Seniors 
or fourth-year class. Until we had our program planned, which took two of three days, the spare time we spent in finding 
out each other's affairs — what they had been doing, how they happened to come back, etc. Thus we discovered that 
Mabelle Frost was from the class of '17, Lura Cushman, Elizabeth Knight and Hazel White were from the class of '18, and 
Florence Adams, Frances Bowes, Doris Hein, Josephine Ryan, Harriet Woodward and Priscilla Twombly came from the class 
of '21. The last of October, we held a class meeting for the purpose of electing officers. We elected seven of the class 
to offices, and stopped there because we couldn't think of any more positions to be filled. Meanwhile, of course, we were 
having classes, some being composed of our entire number, others having five members, and one having only two. In 
chapel, we occupied a conspicuous position, being in the front row, and thus necessitating our presence at morning exercises. 
In our work, it seemed as though always ahead of us was a thesis to be written on corn, tomatoes, fish, education problem, 
or book reports. With a sigh of relief, we would wade through one paper after another, and then one more would be 
thrust upon us — but what is a thesis more or less? Eight of us lived down with Mrs. MacAleer, who listened patiently 
to all our trials and tribulations and — noise. Elizabeth Knight held the dignified position of being assistant matron at 
Crocker, and terrorized the poor H. A. Seniors. Harriet Woodward commuted from Marlboro, and thus helped support 
the B. & A. railroad. All in all, with work and play, we have had an enjoyable year, and are sorry that there isn't 
some other degree besides Bachelor of Education, so that we might come back again. 



Abbott, Lillian T. "Biddy" 

118 Eastern Avenue, Gloucester, Mass. 

Birthday, July 21, 1900 

Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Middle Junior Play; 

Harvard Sub Team; Summer School; Faculty Editor of Dial. 

"Here she comes, there she goes, everybody's dear." 
"Biddy" came to us from Gloucester, and to us all she has made herself dear. 
She dances well, she plays basketball well, and she makes fudge sauce in a 
way we all envy. 

And did anyone ever hear her talk about notebooks, exams, charts, etc. She 
just gets busy and gets things done without worry. 

Is "Biddy" ever unhappy? I should say not; just hear her laughter ring 
throughout the corridor. 

Ackers, Pauline "Polly" 

512 Concord Avenue, Belmont, Mass. 
Birthday, April 18, 1903 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"Her good nature — 'twas her saving grace." 

As a member of Junior I, Pauline was always on hand for basketball practice 
and usually got quite breathless before the time was up. She lived for Friday 
night, when she could be seen hurrying to get "that car." She nas even been 
known to go off in the middle of the week. It takes big events like the Harvard 
and Yale game or the man dance to detain her for a week-end. We shall never 
forget the Junior Masquerade when Pauline made such an interesting clown. 
She has a sweet tooth, for every so often she returned from her week-ends 
with a box of candy. Lucky were the girls who happened along when Pauline 
and the box were "out." That's why the role of detective was forced upon 
her one week. Did you ever find the culprits, Pauline? 

Adelson, Sophie "Sofa" 

14 Bloomingdale Street, Chelsea, Mass. 
Birthday, December 5, 1902 
Y. W. C. A. Play; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts. 

"Better be small and shine, than be great and cast a shadow." 
Although Sophie is one of the smallest in our class, she can beat us all at 
dancing. She did one of her very attractive dances for us at the Commuters' 
play. She also enjoys tennis and hiking. However, with her jolly smile and 
good nature, we are sure she will make a good teacher and we wish her the best 
of success. 



Ames, Laura Mae 


Jamaica Road, Brookline, Mass. 
Birthday, January 29, 1903 
"Better a day of strife, 
Than a century of sleep." 

The foregoing goes to prove that "Sam" is of a slightly belligerent nature. 
Slightly did we say? Why, "Sam" would rather argue (any day) than eat, 
and that's saying something. 

But didn't we all agree that "Sam" was the brightest in the class? That 
goes to show there is sense behind her arguments. 

She is always ready to recite and has relieved many a tense moment by some 
timely remark. 

And those soulful black orbs of hers! What an asset they will be in her teach- 
ing. We wonder if she will allow them to lessen her years in the profession. 
We rest assured that she will achieve wonders in her future work, and that 
some day we will look up to her as a classmate of whom to be proud. 

Austin, Esther Marion "Buddy" 

62 Congress Street, Greenfield, Mass. 

Birthday, May 17, 1902 

Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Maqua Delegate; Member of Student 

Council; Chairman of Mock Man Dance; Harvard Sub-Team. 

"We may build more splendid habitations, 
Fill our rooms with paintings and with sculptures, 
But we cannot 
Buy with gold the old associations." 

Have you ever met a girl who is a shark in all her studies and still has time 
to be a friend to everybody? If not, let us introduce you to Esther. "Buddy" 
is one of the brightest and most enthusiastic of our Regular class. If anyone 
wishes to know anything in History, ask "Buddy," for we all believe that in 
the future she will be a walking History Encyclopedia. 

"Who has 'Buddy's' curling iron?" is the cry that can be heard almost any- 
time on second floor Peirce. Because of her willingness to lend things, and her 
pleasing personality, we all know Esther will be a successful teacher. Here's 
wishing you the best of success, Esther, in all you do. 

Babb, Pauline MacKay "Polly" 

43 Hillside Road, Newton Highlands, Mass. 
Y. W. C. A. ; Lend-a-Hand ; Fine Arts. 

"Never idle a moment, but thrifty and thoughtful of others." 

Everyone knows and loves our tall and stately "Polly," even though she has 

only been living with us one year. In this one short year, we have found 

her the kind of a friend to have — ever loyal and sincere, ready and always 

willing to lend a hand. 

Has this reserved "Miss" a mind of her own? Well, one doesn't have to be 

with her long before she will find that out. 

"Polly" is always ready to give advice on any subject, especially the subject 

of men. Just ask the girls who sat at the same table with her in Crocker. 

Never mind, "Polly," we all love you and wish you the best of success.

Baldwin, Dorothy Ellen "Dot", "Dottie", "Baldy" 

North Stratford, N. H. 
Birthday, December 10, 1900. 
Y. W. C. A.; Glee Club. 

"To those that know thee not, 
No word can paint, — 
And those that know thee, 
All words are faint." 

Here's to "Dottie," one of the best girls a fellow could know. I should judge 
they do, too. To know her, is to love her. If it's a clever, generous, attractive 
girl you are looking for, just hail "Dot." Her favorite pastime is cleaning 
her room. When teaching, she doesn't need discipline; ask her why. Here's 
good luck to you, "Dottie" and success in whatever you attempt next year. 

Ballou, Helen Frances 

4 Arlington Street, Newburyport, Mass. 
Birthday, April 1, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club; H. A. His- 
torian Dial; Summer School. 

"There's ne'er a flower that blooms in May 
That's half so sweet as thou art." 

"Oh, Death! I'm petrified, isn't this ter-r-r-ible?" may be heard from 11 

Crocker when Helen is getting ready for the next week-end at Brown. 

She is a very quiet little girl, until she gets started, and then — "Spirit of 

26 Main!!!" 

Can she sew? Best in the class. 

Can she cook? Remember the spinach? 

In fact, Helen is a very clever and capable girl and will be a great success 

as a teacher, but we wonder for how long. 

Barber, Irene Estelle "Babs" 

Main Street, Sherborn, Mass. 
Birthday, May 22, 1903 
Y. W. C. A.; Delegate to Maqua. 

"Work while you work, 

Play while you play, 

That is the way 

To be happy and gay." 
Irene's modest, unassuming way has won her many friends at F. N. S. Her 
rare ability and good, common sense, as well as her willingness to help, make 
her the best kind of friend a girl could have. She has been one of the stars 
of our class and by volunteering has often saved the rest of us from being 
questioned when we did not know the answer. When it is time for fun. Irene 
is always there and ready to do her part. She is one of the most conscientious 
girls at 1'. X. S. and we are looking forward to a bright career for her. Best 
of success to you, Irene. 



Bemis, Dorothy Marion 

8 Chauncey Place, Charlestown District, Boston, Mass. 
Birthday, September 7, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Girl Scouts '21; Fine Arts. 

"I will look up, and love, and laugh, and lift." 
"Dot" can bake and she can brew, 
Many's the thing that "Dot" can do. 
She has a store of funny tales 
That makes us all forget our ails. 
She is a helpful friend to all 
Ready the minute that we call. 

Boyd, Jessie L. "Dud" 

14 Preston Street, Dedham, Mass. 
Birthday, April 8, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Harvard Basketball Team. 

'To stand by one's friend to the uttermost end, 
And fight a fair fight with one's foe; 
Never to quit and never to twit, 
And never to peddle one's woe." 

Here is a rare mixture of studiousness and humor. We wonder just how 
she manages to keep the right proportions. We sometimes marvel at her 
ability for acquiring and applying knowledge. This ability has been recognized 
by both teachers and students. 

However, "Dud" doesn't study all the time, by any means. Those of third 
north in Horace Mann will remember the entertainments during recreation 
period. And who will forget the way she played in the Harvard Yale game? 
"To stand bv one's friend to the uttermost end" is just "Dud s motto with 
regard to friendship. Many there are who have reaped the benefit of this 
friendship, for she was always willing to lend a helping hand. 
She was athlete, student, friend, adviser, and leader. Capable in so many 
things, we are assured of her success. In the future, we know that 2.1 will 
be proud to claim her as a classmate, and F. N. S. as a graduate.

Boyle, Blanche V. "Giggles" 

41 State Street, Lowell, Mass. 

Birthday, February 14, 1902 

A'Kempis Club; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Semoi Lieutenant Girl 

Scouts; Secretary of Girl Scouts. 

"A soul 

So full of summer warmth, so glad, 

So healthy, and clear and whole." 

Blanche hails from Lowell, a popular place in her estimation. 

Our first year, we only knew the student in Blanche, but after knowing her 

two years, we found out what a pal she is. No party on "Aster Alley" was ever 

complete without "Giggles" and her cookie box. 

Most every Friday night, Blanche packed her suit case (others tried to assist) 

and off she went for the 6:15 and Uncle Jim. 

She has always a kind word and a helping hand. May you have success 

in your teaching. 



Breau, Mary Rita 

12 Haskell Street, North Cambridge, Mass. 
Birthday, August 31, 1901 
A'Kempis Club; Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Summer School. 
" Happy am I, from care I'm free; 
Why aren't they all contented like me." 

Her first year at F. X. S. was spent, for the most part, making her way to 
and from Cambridge But we were all very happy when Mary decided to 
stay with us and we had a chance to know her better. Mary is a wonder, for 
she certainly is original, — whether it be designing hats or getting into mis- 

Beloved by all who know her. Mary is sure to succeed. As she has made 
her happy way through F. N. S. so, we hope, will she continue in the future. 
Best of luck to you, Mary, a good sport and a true friend. 

Breed, Carolyn "Spooks" 

13 Ashland Street, Arlington Heights, Mass. 
Birthday, July 19, 1903 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Delegate to Maqua; Girl 

"Her memory will linger long in all our hearts." 
Who is it that dashes around the corridor dragging a wiggling spider but 
"Spooks"! "Spooks" isn't at all scary as her name might suggest. On the 
contrary, she is courageous at all times — such as trying new adventures 
after "Lights Out" — and being "Fire Chief" on the corridor. 
"Spooks" is one of those girls with a big heart and a helping hand for one 
and all. 

Her manner though quiet on first observation, has proved to be a series of 
delightful surprises, especially her gay laughter! Don't lose that, "Carol" 

"Spooks" and her bed are firm pals and they mav be seen together any time 
after 10:30 and before 8:30 A. M. 

She has a glorious future ahead of her, whether it be teaching infants or study- 
ing Psychology. As she bids adieu in June, we wish her no end of happiness 
and success. 

Brewster, Margery Parks "Marge" 

Windsor, Vermont 
Birthday, February 14, 1S98 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; 

" Honor to those whose words or deeds 
Thus help us in our daily needs." 

Margery came to us in the second year of our sojourn here. During the two 
previous years, she taught among the "Poor Whites" in the mountains of 
Kentucky. Many times we have listened, enchanted, to the tales she tells 
about her work there. She is extremely interested in settlement work. 
"Marge" is very athletic and fond of all kinds of sports, both indoor and out- 
door. She enjoys hiking most of all. 

Margery is very conscientious and succeeds in accomplishing what she plans 
on doing. 
A true friend and a wonderful companion, we are glad to have had you with us. 



Broadhurst, Agnes Virginia "June" 

Shelburne Falls, Mass. 
Birthday, February 18, 1904 
Fine Arts. 

'"Tis quality not quantity that counts." 

Did you ever know a serious mood to prevail in a class where "June" was 
present? That would scarcely be possible, for she has a sense of humor that 
crops out in the most unexpected places. Her giggle is a sign for a general 
contagion, which works havoc with any vestige of order. 

Talk about basketball! One has to have a pretty level head not to experience 
a slightly dizzy feeling when she and "Ag" get in some of their pass work. 
From what we've heard, she made as great a success teaching first graders 
as she did tossing the ball. If our wishes will do you any good, "June," we 
wish you from the bottom of our heart all possible success and happiness for 
the future. 

Brown, Beatrice M. "Bee" 

Concord Street, Holliston, Mass. 
Birthday, March 9, 1903 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Glee Club. 

"Above all things, she loved the truth." 
This is "Bee," the commuter, who can usually be found at the dorm. "I 
want to tell you the funniest joke" — and we know that "Bee" is near. Her 
jokes are always good, too — that is one reason why she always has such 
a welcome awaiting her. 

We can never forget how generously Beatrice gave her time to us, whether 
it was playing ragtime before "gym" or teaching us poor ignoramuses to 
sing "No," "Nah" without choking. "Bee's" capacity for music is not 
her only strong point, for she can hold her own in any class and never fails 
to "ask a question." 

As a member of Junior I basketball team, Beatrice made a corking good guard 
and when the rest of us were dizzy sending zig-zag-passes, "Bee" was always 
there to get the ball. 

Good sport, loyal friend, helpful classmate, still keep your ideals when you 
are far from F. N. S. and 1922.

Saxonville, Mass. 
Birthday, August 20, 1902

"Some think the world is full of fun and frolic, and so do I." 

"K." is one of our good all-round girls. She works hard and plays hard. 

She has some very interesting ideas about teaching and life in general, which 

she occasionally expounds for us, and from which we gather, with good reason, 

that she will be one of our really good teachers. 

Incidentally, "K" has an exceedingly contagious chuckle, at least it starts as 

a chuckle, but with a little encouragement, it develops and spreads until it 

just dies a natural death, or unnatural, according to the setting. I might 

add that Katharine was the "saving grace" of our educational measurements 

class. We appreciated her then as never before! 

Statistics show that girls like "K" remain in the teaching profession anywhere 

from two to five years. What then? 



Burroughs, Helen I. 

Boxborough, Mass. 
Birthday, February 17, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand ; Fine Arts; Summer School. 

"The man that has no music in himself 
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, 
Is fit for treason, stratagems and spoils." 

Dash it!! Helen is getting excited, — it is most time to run for the car; — 

Helen is toddling down to Waltham this week-end. Oh, yes, there is a reason 

for those early morning telephone calls. 

One could easily guess that Helen loves to sing, for often we hear strains from 

the "Love Nest," floating down the corridor. 

But there is another phase to Helen's life. She believes, "if a thing is worth 

doing at all, it is worth doing well," even if it isn't ready to pass in on time. 

Then when it comes to things which require an artistic eye, she surely can put 

the right kind of a touch to it. 

Bushnell, Alice M. "Al" 

East Dedham, Mass. 
Birthday, June 1, 1903 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

" Her looks do argue her to be replete with modesty." 

Alice is modest, that is true, but along with her modesty, she possesses a quality 
of "sticktuitiveness" that brings her with flying colors through anything, 
be it a psychology test or a "home-run race." And why is it that "Al" is 
always in such a hurry to get home? Ask her and you invariably get the 
answer, "Oh, I've got to go to the dentist." We are wondering what attractions 
the dentist has to offer. 
One of "Al's" noblest traits is her willingness to lend. 

So here's to you, our classmate, "Al," 

You've always_been"a kind, true pal. 

Byron, May L. "Mike", "Mazzie" 

54 North Avenue, Attleboro Falls, Mass. 
Birthday, January 17, 1901 
A'Kempis Club; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts Club. 

"A daughter of the gods, divinely tall, and most divinely fair." 
May, sunshine of our "Aster Alley," always brightening our gloomy lives 
with her bright disposition touched off by her bright tresses. I can hear 
your voice now. May, as of old, when you called out about ten thirty, "Please 
turn out the light when you're through, Beth." However, Beth was not 
always the guilty one, because that faithful exit light has rendered untold 
services to all of us. 

May is never idle a moment, but thrifty and thoughtful of others. We feel sure 
that she will succeed and that only happiness and prosperity are before her.

Cahill, Dorothy V. "Dot" 

19 West Pine Street, Milford, Mass. 

Birthday, July 18, 1903 

A'Kempis Club; Fine Arts Club; Secretary Commuters' Project. 

"So bright is thy Beauty, so charming thy Song, 
As had drawn both the Beasts and their Orpheus along." 
"Oh, my Dear!" — That's "Dot." While she's around, we certainly enjoy her, 
for no one ever saw "Dot" downhearted. In fact, she manages to cheer up 
everyone in the near vicinity. "Dot" has many accomplishments; playing 
the piano, singing, and has a wonderful personality. Her friends all envy 
"Dot" her glorious color and delightful blush. No drug store can match it. 
She is a conscientious student and always has her work prepared. On all 
occasions, "Dot" has proved herself a good sport and a staunch friend. 
Good luck, "Dot!" 

Carlson, Elizabeth Hunnewell "Betty" 

131 Bishopsgate Road, Newton Center, Mass. 
Birthday, March 5, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Vice-President Lend-a-Hand; President Fine Arts 
Club; President Student Council; Treasurer of Glee Club; Vice- 
President Junior Class; Girl Scouts; Yale Sub Team. 

"A hand that follows intellect can achieve." 
Does "Betty" need an introduction? "Well, I don't know." It hardly seems 
possible that anyone could have been here long without knowing that she is 
one of the boosters, though in her rather calm way. As Fine Arts President 
and an upholder of the Glee Club treasury, she is worthy of much praise. 
Certainly, student council would have been longer in coming had not Betty 
helped with her big shove and she well deserves the presidency. 
As for teaching ability, no one can question that, when she managed and 
taught the Vocational Middle Juniors. I wonder if she will start her classes 
with "Say, look, see," or will there be another more adequate, popular 

Caron, Rose Blanche 

Wrentham, Mass. 
Birthday, June 2, 1902 
A'Kempis Club; Fine Arts Club. 

"Two brown eyes has she — beware." 

Rose is a living example of that old proverb — "Appearances are deceiving." 

To look at her, one would think . . . well, what would you think? We 

thought that last year; but happily we were wrong, and this vear we have 

found her full of life and always ready to meet us halfway. 

And can she dance? At the dances in Wrentham, wherever the biggest crowd 

is, there will Rose be found. 

She has been thinking of going to Virginia to teach, but as that is a long way 

from Massachusetts, we doubt very much if her plan would be met with 

approval by a certain resident of our fair State. It's a secret now, but wait!

Carpenter, Marion "Spuddie" 

122 Chapin Road, Hudson, Mass. 
Birthday, June 2, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts Club. 
"A ready smile, a cheery word, a sunbeam in this world of strife." 

Everyone likes "Spuddie, "for she's a good pal, a good sport, full of fun, and 
a willing helper. Her favorite expression is, "I like to work" and certainly 
she never shirks. When she laughs, the world laughs with her. 
"Spuddie's" words are few, but, believe me, she made the ice cream freezer 
talk, out on Crocker back piazza. Now, don't try to "kid" her because you 
can't do it. 
She has had success at F. N. S., and we wish her more in her new undertakings.

Chace, Doris H. "Dot", "Dotty" 

72 Cedar Street, Taunton, Mass. 
Birthday, February 18, 1903 
Y. W.'C. A.; Lend-a-Hand. 

"She's all my fancy painted her." 

Who is? Why, "Dot," of course, who else could one mean? She is the cutest 
little blond you ever saw, with a pair of eyes which no one can say she does 
not know how to use. How about it, "Dot?" They'll be a great help, too, 
next year when she starts teaching, to make the children stand around and 
mind their P's and Q's. 

No one could ask for a better friend than "Dot," and she is one of the best 
sports, too. There is nothing she will not attempt, once at least — even to 
tobogganing down the back hill when it is one glare of ice. She will have 
friends a-plenty wherever she goes, and we wish her all the success in the world. 

Chase, Fannie B. 

Springfield, Vermont 

Birthday, October 30, 1888 

"To know her, is to love her." 

Once upon a time, there were some naughty eighth-grade boys. So Mrs. Chase 
came to F. N. S. to find "the royal road to discipline." At the beginning of 
our Senior year she came. She chose mostly Junior subjects for specialization, 
so in school hours we see little of her, except in passing to classes. Then, if we 
be fortunate enough to obtain the attention of those deep blue eyes, we are 
greeted by one of Mrs. Chase's bestest smiles. Junior messenger birds bring 
us messages something like this, "If you have forgotten the lesson, ask Mrs. 

We are glad you came to us. Mrs. Chase. Our only regret is that we must part 
so soon. One year is a short time for getting acquainted, but it is better than 
no year at all. Although we could tell you of no "royal road to discipline." 
we wish you the best of luck in your future teaching. Wherever you may 
roam, think sometimes of the class of '22. 



Cheney, Catherine Myra "Kay" 

6 Cant-well Road, Milton, Mass. 
Birthday, July 4, 1902 
Y.W.C. A.; Fine Arts Club. 

"If any thought of mine, sung, or told, 
Has ever given delight or consolation, 
Ye have repaid me back a thousand fold, 
By every friendly sign and salutation." 
"Kay" is an all-round good sport and if there is anything you want done. 
"Kay" surely is the one who will do it for you. 

"Put the flag out, girls, 'Kay' is up for breakfast," is a statement rarely heard 
in second corridor Peirce. We wonder why? 

"Kay" has started writing a book, which has a mysterious looking red cover 
on it. I wonder if she will finish it before it is published? 

There is no doubt but what "Kay" will be a successful teacher in the primary 
grades. Wonder why she visits the Practice School so frequently. Here's 
to you "Kay," the best of luck for a successful career from all of your friends 
of the class of '22. 

Childs, Elizabeth Lusk "Betty" 

Deerfield, Mass. 
Birthday, July 7, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts Club. 
"Our friends see the best in us, and by that very fact, call forth the 

best from us." 
We all know "Betty's" love for dancing, and her skill along that line, but it 
is not to be compared with her skill in making "Baking Powder Biscuits" in 
"Room 23." 

We wonder if "Betty" has ever heard the saying, "There is a place for every- 
thing, and everything in its place." She didn't seem to practice it when frosting 
cakes while in House Practice. 

When you need a friend or want anything done, call on "Betty." You will 
always find her the same generous, good-hearted sport. 

Christopher, Dorothy Emily "Dot" 

3 Fern Avenue, Amesburv, Mass. 
Birthday, June 11, 1902 

"Laugh, and the world laughs with you." 

We know that's "Dot's" rule of life even though she never told us so. She's 
one of those girls who always sees the bright side of life and helps others see it. 
Why is it that laughter and fun always follow her? Must be her personality. 
She is always there, be it work or play. Is she quiet? Well, how about those 
lonely (?) study hours, "Dot?" And — did you and "June" ever get caught 
after ten? Oh, no! 

What we'd like to know is when "Dot" studies? No one ever catches her at 
it, yet she is always ready in class, and always finds time to help others who 
are not so speedy. Can't you just hear her say, "Oh, heck," when something 
goes wrong? 

Well, "Dot," here's to you. May you be as successful in teaching as in your 
speedy games of basketball. 



Clark, Helen A. 


725 Concord Street, Framingham, Mass. 
Birthday, March 2, 1902 
"Music hath charms." — 
Helen has both. Nothing ever worries Helen. Anything from a geography 
test to a teaching plan in arithmetic calls forth an "Oh, that's easy" from 
"Clarkie." As for teaching music, she doesn't have to even think of that 
subject — she just clamly walks to the front of the class — and teaches. 
And she gets the marks, too. How come? Helen is very obliging, especially 
in the lunch room (when we're making fudge), she's always ready to work. 
We wonder why a certain teacher thinks "Clarkie" is particularly interested in 
going to lectures in Boston? "Clarkie" found a quotation which interested 
her the other day — "Too late he stayed"- — We would like to know why, 
who and when. We might guess, though — Here's wishing you good luck, 
"Clarkie." We've been mighty glad to have you with us — our only regret 
is that you didn't come sooner. 

Clarke, Alice Chamberlain 


32 Glover Street, Southbridge, Mass. 

Birthday, December 29, 1900 

Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts Club; Girl Scouts; Middle Junior Play; 

Summer School. 

"A friendship consists in being a friend, not in having a friend." 

That's "Al." For, first of all, she is a good friend — always ready to do some- 
thing for someone else. But about her affairs at Mashpaug she is invariably 
quiet, we wonder why. She hates to be called conscientious, but we all know 
that she does manage to have her work done on time and it is always exquisitely 
done. We wish you the best of luck, "Al." 

Cody, Alice "Al" 

32 Valley Road, Milton, Mass. 
Birthday, June 1, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand Club; Fine Arts Club; Dial Staff; 
Harvard Team. 

"To know her, is to love her." 

Who knows of a better sport than "Al?" Anywhere, everywhere, always 
ready for a good time. One thing to be remembered is, she is always the 
same. She has made herself famous by her artistic capacities, and she deserves 
praise for her clever work. At first, when we did not know her very well, we 
thought she was rather quiet, but we soon changed our thoughts after hearing 
her witty remarks and witnessing her "Fantastic and Grecian" dancing. As 
for studies, "Al" never worries, but when the end comes she is there with her 
work up to date. Notebooks are her specialty, they are so neat and attractive. 
When you want a real friend, you can find one in "Al." 




Coleman, Agnes C. 

Natick, Mass. 
Birthday, September 5, 1902 
A'Kempis Club; Yale Basketball Team. 

"Shoot!! Not a man but a basket." Who would utter such a threat but "Ag" 
Coleman Wherever athletics are concerned, Agnes is alwavs right at the front, 
wnether it be tennis, baseball, swimming, or dancing. She not only excels 
in sports but also in her school work. In her practice teaching, Agnes did 
splendidly. One glance from those brown eyes and — no more disorder. 
1 here isn t anyone in school but who knows about Agnes's soulful brown 
eyes, lo look into them, one would think her very shy and demure, but we 
know Ag better than that. She has a wonderfui disposition and we know 
her pupils will love her as we do. F. N. S. joins with us in wishing Agnes 

Connor, Agnes Mary 

138 Fells Avenue, Medford, Mass. 

Birthday, October 12, 1901 

A'Kempis Club; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts; Middle 

Junior Play; Summer School. 

"A bank of credit on which we can draw supplies of confidence, 

counsel, sympathy, help and love." 

Now, isn't that just Agnes all over? The more we see of her, the better we 
like her. And did you ever see her idle? If she isn't studying for some play, 
she's making bungalow aprons. But she's not always serious, oh, no! Re- 
member the day she wore her hat backwards and her rubbers on the wrong 

Connors, Mary V. "Rummy" 

Weston, Mass. 
Birthday, May 16, 1901 
President A'Kempis; Fine Arts; Summer School. 
"77 is good to be great, it is good to be rich, 
But it is better to be beloved of many friends." 
Mary usually forgot to worry and always managed to make the rest of us 
smile. ^ Her ready wit and dry humor have often attracted the matron to 
Room 21 or 22. Many a night, Mary has been lured from her room between 
ten and twelve to reproduce her thrilling time last week-end. Mary, with 
her bright cheery disposition, is right there when it comes to a good time, 
even if it does necessitate carrying an alarm clock in her pocket. 
Her one ambition is to make the nights longer and the days shorter. 




Cormier, Blanche Irene 

Lincoln Street, Marlboro, Mass. 
Birthday, August 9, 1903 

"Say what you think, 
Never mind what your neighbor thinks." 

Yes, this is Blanche. If you want to have her opinion on a subject, she is ready 
and unafraid to give it to you. She is a "true blue" girl. What would the 
fame of Junior I's basketball team have been if Blanche hadn't played as side- 
center? She never thinks of the gym floor being hard; all she thinks of is how 
she is going to help win the game. You may be sure she makes it regardless 
of who tries to interfere. It never matters to Blanche whether it is a history 
outline, a place name test or a pantomime for expression; she puts it "over 
the top" with the same willing spirit and determination. We all hope that 
her teaching career will be full of success and happiness, as her school davs 
at F. N. S. 

Cotter, Louise R. "Rusty" 

Fairfield Street, Dedham, Mass. 
Birthday, February 7, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts Club; Glee Club; Orchestra. 
"Let us, then, be tuhat we are, 
And speak what we think, and in all things 
Keep ourselves loyal to truth." 
"Rusty" is our little fiddler. What would we do without her in the orchestra. 
Free thinking is her specialty. Perhaps this accounts for her teaching ability. 
She was very fortunate to have her teaching assignment in Dedham. How- 
she ever lived through whole week-ends during house practice is beyond our 

We feel certain that you will be successful in teaching. "Rusty." May the 
best of luck be yours always and always. 

Darling, Elizabeth Sherman "Beth" 

1.54 Green Street, Athol, Mass. 
Birthday, December 13, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts Club; Mandolin Club. 
"Words are easy, like the wind, 
Faithful friends are hard to find." 
"Beth" is one of those girls with whom it is very hard to get well acquainted. 
When you know her. you find that she is a very true and faithful friend. She 
possesses that most important quality of true friendship — loyalty. "Beth" 
is loyal to her friends through "thick and thin."

Davis, Elizabeth "Libbo" 

90 Grampian Way, Dorchester, Mass. 
Birthday, November 2, 1900 
Treasurer Y. W. C. A.; President Lend-a-Hand; House President 
Peirce Hall; Vice-President Middle Junior Class; Secretary Glee 
Club; Orchestra; Assistant Business Manager of Dial; Mandolin 
Club; Middle Junior Play; Summer School; Fine Arts Club. 
"To tease her is more darn fun" 

When you are blue or can't find anything to do, just call on "Libbo" and try 
teasing her. Almost anyone can succeed if they have the right recipe. One 
of her favorite pastimes is perusing the newspapers, but what she expects to 
find we have never discovered. There are times when she is quite serious 
and that is when she is hustling around to go somewhere or to get things done. 
Then how everything flies, work as well as clothes! If her list of activities 
are a sign of her success in the future, we are sure she will have a very busy 
and happy one. 

Davis, Frances Lucile "Cilly" 

Indian Hill Street, West Newbury, Mass. 
Birthday, February 13, 1897 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts. 

"Let us, then, be what we are, and speak what we think and in all 

things, keep ourselves loyal to truth and the sacred 

profession of friendship" 

Her name is "Cilly" but it should be "Peanuts," since the consumption of 
them is her favorite pastime. Do you remember in our first year, the day 
she absent-mindedly walked out of showers? 

Lucile is independent and loyal, in spite of her explosive outbursts, and has 
a deep appreciation of the better things of life. 

Davis, Vera L. "V" 

11 Ballard Street, Jamaica Plain, Mass. 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Summer School. 

"A contented spirit — is the sweetness of existence" 

One would surely think that "V's" soul had been blessed with the patience 
of the gods, if one should watch her work for hours over a tiny placket which 
refused to "go right," while the rest of us gave up in despair. Patience is a 
virtue with Vera, especially week-ends when she tries to skillfully maneuver 
three men in an afternoon, and gracefully bows them out in time for a fourth 
in the evening. 

Vera is a good friend, always ready to give some one a good time or to smooth 
over the ruffled surfaces. 






Day, Alice Emily "Al" 

Highland Street, South Hamilton, Mass. 

Birthday, April 24, 1900 

Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Glee Club Librarian; Fine Arts. 

"Her air, her manners, all who saw admir'd, 

Courteous though coy, and gentle though retir'd; 

The joy of youth and health her eyes display d, 

And ease of heart her every look convey d." 

Anyone who has seen Alice, knows that she is always on the jump. She has 
the faculty of putting things through, by hook or by crook, and quickly and 
well. If anything is wanted, go to Alice and she'll help you out. It doesn't 
take long to shake the blues in her presence, and her understanding and open- 
mindedness has helped more than one of us. She has pluck, too, and is one of 
the best all-around girls to be found anywhere. You've begun well, Alice, 
and "well begun is half done."

Arts; Harvard Toastmistress; Business Manager Middle Junior 
Play; Grind Editor of Dial; Glee Club; Summer School; Girl 

" T« the song you sing, and the smile you wear, 
That makes the sunshine everywhere." 

"Oh, here comes Helen Doane! I can hear her laughing." This announces 
the arrival of a very busy senior, with occasionally a pile of Junior Chem 
Notebooks to correct. You may guess, then, that her ability in Chemistry 
is above the ordinary, and of course you are right. Even when hurrying to 
her numerous tasks she is always bubbling with laughter, a kind of continuous 
giggle wholly her own that we can never forget. Underneath all the merriment 
is a very capable girl. Helen has shown marked ability not only in managing 
plays and socials in the Gym, but occasionally when conducting circus bands 
as the Maqua delegates will recall. As a friend, she hardly needs a recom- 
mendation. Her sympathy and cheery helpfulness, as well as her frank sincerity, 
are known to all of us. We know success awaits Helen in whatever she under-

"'Always ready to help" 

Eleanor? — oh, yes! leave it to Eleanor. Whoever saw her sad or cross, she 
always has a smile except when someone wants to argue and then she's right 
there to take her part. Does anybody want someone to help? — well! here's 
Eleanor ready to help and she's always so good hearted. We know you'll be 
a success, Eleanor, if you teach with the same spirit you have here in school. 



Draper, Harriette Viola "Harrietteee" 

High Street, Westwood, Mass. 
Birthday, April 16, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club; Summer 

Here's a girl we call true blue, 

Helpful, kind, and thoughtful too. 

She has a disposition sunny, 

And at times she can be funny. 

For she caused a big sensation. 

The day she gave her demonstration. 

She has ever so many beaux 

But sometimes with a "Bell" she goes. 

This my wish, I'll put on paper, 

That more there were like Harriette Draper.

4 Central Avenue, South Braintree, Mass. 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club; Summer 

' 'She is pretty to walk with 
A nd witty to talk with 
And pleasant too, to think on." 

"Puss" is a right jolly good sport, 

Rivalling the sailors with a beau in every port. 

House parties and dorm parties are fine 

And trips to "town" are right in her line. 

"Puss" is a friend we all are mighty glad to have. 
She is never too preoccupied or busy to welcome you whenever you drop in — 
except early in the morning. We shall all miss "Puss's" bright smile and jolly 
companionship and we know she will fill an enviable place wherever she goes, 
just as she has here in our crowd at F. N. S. 

Dufault, Diana Helene "Di" 

Summer Street, Marlboro, Mass. 
Birthday, May 9, 1903 
A'Kempis; Fine Arts. 

"But a small gift, 
Yet to me sweet is the giving ; 
A tiny bloom from friendship 1 s tree 
To show 'tis living." 

"Di" is just bubbling over with enthusiasm and mirth. She is a sure cure for 
the blues, also a life-saver, as she is always prepared to answer in class when 
silence reigns supreme. But that is not all; she can dance and make eyes 
to perfection. Seldom is she found serious and thoughtful after classes are 
dismissed; nevertheless, we believe she will make a charming teacher. "Good 
luck to you, Buddy," is the parting word of a friend. 



Dyer, Esther May 

206 Russell Street, Worcester, Mass. 

Birthday, April 12, 1900 

Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts Club; Summer School. 

"We have much to enjoy in the quiet and retirement of our own 


Esther is a small but dignified young lady, difficult to understand at times but 

a good and loyal friend to have. She is one of our very few quiet members, 

extremely pleasant to know, especially when one needs quietness and help. 

Is she independent? well! I should say she is, and reserved too; that is the 

reason it is so hard to know her. 

If honey is any indication, Esther should be very sweet; perhaps that is why 

her Dad keeps so many bees. 

Can anyone tell us why Esther goes home every week-end? 

Eldridge, Marian Wilton 

47 Pine Street, Peterboro, N. H. 
Birthday, January 7, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Summer School. 
"Smile a little, smile a little, 
As you go along; 
Not alone when life is pleasant, 
But when things go wrong." 

What is the matter? Is someone getting hurt? Oh, no! Marian has just 

found someone to tease. She is so fond of teasing others, yet is a mighty good 

sport when the tables are turned. Will we ever forget the night when she was 

acting as matron at summer school when she was locked out? 

Marian is a fast worker. It never takes her long to get a thing done. Without 

her cheerful help and friendship, we would have missed a great deal at Fram- 


Elias, Grace Lodusky "Gracie", "Shrimp" 

11 Highland Street, Concord Junction, Massachusetts 
Birthday, December 9, 1900 
Y. W. C. A. ; Middle Junior Play ; Fine Arts. 
"There's joy for us a-plenty, there are tasks for us to do, 

And life is worth the living, for the friends we know, are true." 
"Gracie" dropped in from Vermont three years ago. She was a demure little 
country maiden, but see what Framingham has done for her! The sparkle in 
her eye has grown, and remember the Middle Junior Play. She was some 
boy! For all of Gracie's fun, she can sober down and be a typical school- 
mam. We've all heard about her first day teaching. I guess that class 
found they couldn't "put anything over on her," clever as they seemed. 
She has surely been a live wire in "Aster Alley," and we couldn't get along 
without her. Best of luck and happiness where'er you go, Gracie. 



Facey, Elizabeth L. "Lib" 

Duxbury, Mass. 
Birthday, April 14, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

' ' Herself a fairer flower" 

Who is that pretty girl with light hair, rosy cheeks, and pleasant smile? It 

is none other than Lib Facey, of course. During her years at Framingham, 

she has proven herself to be just as good as she is fair. She is the sort of girl 

whom you could not refrain from loving. She is always ready to help anyone 

in need or trouble and her patience is untiring. Lib is a good sport, too, and 

is always ready for any fun or frolic whatever it may be. 

Lib is especially fond of teaching in the lower grades. We do not wonder 

that all the "kiddies" adore her. We are sure that she will make a splendid 


Here's to your future success and happiness, Lib, and may you always 

remember your friends at F. N. S.

Birthday, August 5, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club. 
"To one alone my thoughts arise" 

"Little I" down in Room 1 is one of those quiet girls, demure, and sweet 
.always. We don't know her very well, for she seldom stays week-ends and 
during the week, spare moments find her industriously embroidering, hemming 
and cross-stitching. Not only is she little, but it looks as though she would 
be little all her life; but later, she'll spell it with a capital and have Parker to 
go with it. Her rapidly filling hope-chest looks mighty unfavorable for the 
teaching profession; but if we can judge by her bright smiles, she is mighty 
pleased with it. 

Fitts, Gertrude Virginia "Gert" 

Elm Street, Quincy, Mass. 
Birthday, November 25, 1900 
Y. W. C. A. ; Lend-a-Hand ; Fine Arts. 

"But upon thy youthful forehead, 
Something like a shadow lies 
And a serious soul is looking 
From thy earnest eyes." 

"Gert" is all you could ask in a friend. She delights in going home week- 
ends, but occasionally will stay over Friday nights to get "that letter" or 
"that telephone call." 

We don't know what she will do next year, but "Gert" has her own ideas 
about being a dietitian somewhere. Everyone knows it was not only "feeding 
the babies" that interested her on the Floating Hospital. 
"Gert" is both capable and conscientious and her future is sure to be successful. 




Flanders, Freda "Frigid" 

Chilmark, Mass. 
Birthday, May 9, 1901 
Glee Club; Summer School; Sub-Team Harvard. 
"Not that she loved study less" 
But she loved fun more." 

Freda is one of those girls whom we need in our school to liven things up. 
Some of us may wonder why she spends many of her week-ends in South- 
borough, but those who know her do not have to ask questions. However, 
Freda is very efficient in her studies and enjoys her work in F. N. S. so well 
that she is coming back to take the fourth-year course. We wish her the best 
of success and hope that her one ambition to teach in China may be fulfilled 
some day. 

Flye, Mildred Ada "Mill" 

21 Elm Street, Methuen, Mass. 
Birthday, August 3, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Captain Girl Scouts; Fine Arts; 
Summer School. 

" Her heart is in the right place" 

When asked, Mildred says, she "tries" to be good, however, she not only 
tries but succeeds in being good and in everything else she undertakes to do. 
Knocks? yes, Mildred is at her best in both giving and taking them. 
All in all, Mildred is just one good sport and we are sure that wherever she goes, 
she will do what is absolutely right. 

Gaffney, Marion E. 

154 High Street, Taunton, Mass. 
Birthday, July 22, 1902 
A'Kempis Club; Fine Arts. 

"She is a jolly good girl and liked right well by all" 

Do we all know Marion? Well, I guess we do. Although she is quiet to all 

outward appearances, those of us who chum around with her know that she 

is as lively as the best of us. 

Is she a good sport? Ask any of the girls who were in the "Gym" the day she 

jumped the hurdles, turned somersaults and hopped on "all fours" the length 

of the floor. 

As Marion is very capable, we are assured that she will make a successful 

teacher and all our best wishes go with her. 






Gammons, Ruth A. "Ruthie", "Rosie", "Junior" 

31 Harrison Avenue, Taunton, Mass. 
Birthday, August 27, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Glee Club. 

"Such a whirlpool in her head of j 'tin and mischief" 
"My name is Ruth Gammons. I live at 31 Harrison Avenue. Taunton, 
Massachusetts, I'm all right." And she is all right, although you might not 
think it when she begins making those realistic "fish faces." But poor Ruthie 
just can't keep her dignity. Who could, if she were continually being mistaken 
for a Junior? But what's this? It's Sunday night. The telephone bell rings. 
A minute elapses, then, up the stairs, "Ruth Gammons! Telephone!" Exit 
Ruth for half an hour. Here's wishing you success, Ruth, but don't forget 
your contract! 

Goddard, Effie "Epiglottis" 

201 Forest Street, Arlington Heights 75, Mass. 
Birthday, January 5, 1901 
Y. W. C. A. Cabinet; Student Volunteer, Secretary Lend-a- 
Hand; President Horace Mann Hall; President X. P. K.; Senior 
Class Treasurer; Delegate to Maqua; Fine Arts; H. A. Statis- 
tician Dial; Summer School. 

"/ would be a friend of all — the foe — the friendless; 
I would be giving and forget the gift; 
I would be humble, for I know my weakness, 
I would look up and laugh — and love — and lift." 

Just a glance at the list above shows what a competent girl Effie is. And you 
should see her tat! Eflfie is jollity itself, yet serious when occasion demands. 
Her warm sympathy, sunshiny disposition, and readiness to do a kindness 
make for her many friends. The best of luck to you in your work, Effie. 
We know you'll make a success of it. When we travel in China, we'll plan to 
spend a night at the Goddard-Murray Orphan Asylum. 

Goodwin, Frances Julia "Fran" 

Hollis, New Hampshire 
Birthday, August 21, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts; Summer 

"There's a good time coming — when "Fran" gets here" 

Once upon a time, there was a girl who went to school at F. N. S. In her 
senior year, that girl lived at Crocker Hall and, oh, what a good time she had 
with all her friends. She was always known as "Fran" and if there were 
any fun "Fran" was right there. Yes, and it was her dry remarks that kept 
the girls in such a gale of laughter. 

Ask "Fran" if she has ever been homesick since her junior year. I'll answer 
for her and tell you, no. 




9 i. H 

Gould, Myrtle E. "Mickey" 

24 Park Street, Hanover, N. H. 
Birthday, February 6, 1903 
A'Kempis; Fine Arts Club. 

"Petite in size — big in mind, 
A dearer girl is hard to find." 

"Where's Mickey?" 

"Why. didn't you see her all dolled up and ready for one of her wonderful 

long hikes?" 

"Mickey" is our only girl from Hanover, New Hampshire, and that is how 

we get so much of our "inside information" that only a girl from Hanover 

could tell us. 

"Mickey" is always ready for a sympathetic word for everybody and because 

of that, we always run to her with our "History" troubles. 

Notice: — If any one wants any information, whether it be "making an apron" 

or settling the time and place for a date — go to "Mickey." 

Graves, Marian Gertrude "Gravy" 

18 First Street, Cliftondale, Mass. 
Birthday, June 29, 1901 
President Y. W. C. A.; Secretary Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; 
Silver Bay Delegate; Maqua Delegate; Vice-President Fine Arts; 
Editor-in-chief of Dial; Treasurer X. P. K.; Glee Club Pianist; 
Orchestra Pianist; Stage Manager Middle Junior Play; Girl 

" 'Tis the music that you make, and the smiles that you wear, 
That scatters the sunshine everywhere." 
Could glee club, orchestra, assembly or a social evening be complete without 
Marian? Indeed not. Her untiring efforts for these, to say nothing of what 
she has done as editor-in-chief of the Dial, have won a place for her in her 
classmates hearts. 

However, from living near Marian we have found two weak points — namely, 
her fondness for not going to breakfast and having her light on after ten o'clock. 

Griffin, Ruth Alma "Tweetie" 

161 East Central Street, Natick, Mass. 

Birthday, February 20, 1902 

"Soup of the evening, beautiful soup" 

Only it's soup at noon for Ruth. She is the founder as well as chief cook and 
bottle washer of the commuters' lunch room. After a few loquacious battles 
as to "who is boss of this lunch room, anyway." Ruth and "Sully" finally signed 
a truce and peace has reigned since. Just the same, if it hadn't been for the 
untiring efforts of "Tweetie." the commuters would have been minus many 
a cup of hot soup. Ruth's lessons don't worry her very much. And why 
should they? Ruth isn't planning to earn her own bread and butter very 
long. Oh, no! She's planning to leave the rank and file of our noble profession 
and is going to Lawrence — or Laurence — which is it? We wish you luck 
and happiness 'n everything. May your experience in the lunch room prove 
valuable to you!" 



Hall, Dorothy Priscilla "Dot", "Dottie", "Dolly" 

Greenwich Village, Mass. 

Birthday, April 15, 1901 

Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Girl Scouts; Fine Arts; Glee Club. 

" Not a sane and cold ideal, not a poet's dream alone, but a presence 

warm and real, seen, and felt and known" 

Who has ever found "Dot" to fail in a time of need? In the three years that 
we have known her, we have never seen a day pass but that she wore a cheery, 
smiling face. We have found "Dot" to be a staunch true friend, always 
sympathetic to all, and obliging always. Her bright smile has helped us over- 
many hard places. She is a true "Scout" and always ready to "Lend a Hand." 

Harrington, Catherine. "K" 

173 Lindell Avenue, Leominster, Mass. 
Birthday, April 20, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club. 

"Just a kind word and a yielding manner and anger and 
complaining may be avoided" 

This applies to "K," always sweet and agreeable, willing to do anything, 
except to tell her secrets. However, that is a good trait and she should be 
proud to have such a characteristic. 

Her teaching in Westboro proved to be very successful in more ways than one. 
Whatever work "K" does, is done well and always will be so. 

Hathaway, Doris I. "Dot" 

Notch Road, Adams, Mass. 

Birthday, February 20, 1902 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 
"What do we live for if it is not to make life less difficult for others" 

If you are in search of a bright, lovable and attractive girl — just let me intro- 
duce you to "Dot." Doris came to us from the far-off Berkslures, and we are 
very grateful to Adams for sending us such a fine representative. 
Whenever a good time is in progress, "Dot" is always ready for fun, even tho 
it may mean reciting tomorrow's lessons to her sleepy roommate after 10 
P. M. Her helpful spirit and happy disposition have made her loved by us 

"Dot" is both capable and conscientious and will make a teacher of whom 
Framingham may be justly proud. 



Hathaway, Helen Fanning 

242 Sawyer Street, New Bedford, Mass. 

Birthday, February 2, 1902 

Vice-President Y. W. C. A. ; Fine Arts; Business Manager of Dial. 

"The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do 

well, without a thought of fame" 

During her two years at F. N. S., Helen has rightfully been one of our leaders 

in many of the college activities, including the classroom. 

Quiet tho she may appear to be, she is full of good fun and plays a large part 

in helping to give others a good time. 

As for her chosen profession, we know she will be successful as a Junior High 

teacher, as she has been a worthy member of 1922. 

A person of sound judgment, high ideals, and a likeable personality, she is 

proudly claimed as a friend by all who know her. 

Hayward, Loraine "Rainy", "Rain" 

Flat Hill, Lunenburg, Mass. 
Birthday, September 20, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Glee Club; Summer School. 
"And ever as she went, some merry lay she sang" 

"Rainy" comes from Lunenburg — near Fitchburg — you know, so that 
makes us indebted to Lunenburg. What should we have done without Loraine 
to sing at those after-dinner parties in Crocker parlor! Everyone of us would 
leave our "special duty" anytime to hear her sing. Next to singing, "Rainy" 
is good at imitating? If you've not heard her version of "Good morning, cow, 
I m going to school." you've missed a lot. Her intrepretation of Red Riding 
Hood is quite original since she always has the Grandmother eat the wolf, 
but the story looses none of its charm for all that. All around. "Rainy" is a 
pretty good sort and we're glad to say we know her. 

Hoeh, Florence Marion "Floppy" 

21 Marcella Street, Roxburv, Mass. 
Birthday, April 10, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Middle Junior Play; 
Summer School; Crocker House President. 

" How happy is he born and taught 
That serveth not another's will; 
Whose armour is his honest thought, 
And simple truth his utmost skill." 
Tis true, valuable things come in small packages, for our Floppy, though 
short of stature, has been most valuable to many a weary seamstress. It must 
be her conscientiousness in the performing of her own duties that gives her 
so much time in which she is always readv and willing to help anyone to whom 
she can be of assistance. In spite of the fact that week-ends spell home to 
"Floppy," it seems that she is always around to play the piano for us. 



Holman, Harriet Bernice "Hat" or "Hattie" 

183 Walpole Street, Norwood, Mass. 
Birthday, April 26, 1902 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts Club. 
"Tall, taller, tallest!" 
"Hat" or "Hattie" is her name, 
Norwood is her station, 
And every time our "Hat" comes back, 
She brings a whole week's ration." 

Let us introduce you to our "Hattie." She is a tall girl with black hair, who 
wears a smile that never comes off. 

She seems to enjoy the week days at F. N. S., but when Friday comes, she leaves 
all her cares behind her and speeds away to Norwood. What about it, "Hattie"? 
Then again, who was the best man at the Mock-Man dance? None other 
than our "Hat." 

Holmes, Margaret Melrose "Peg" 

Towner, North Dakota 
Birthday, September 15, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts. 

"Wit, humor and enduring vivacity has she" 

The wind blew hard from the northwest, and a bright cloud appeared in the 
sky. When it had vanished, we looked — behold here was "Peg," reflecting 
all the brightness of that cloud. 

That was nearly three years ago and since then she has made a host of friends 
and has had more interesting experiences than all the rest of us together. 
After two years here, she courageously went to work on the Floating Hospital 
for the summer. And "Mondooly" how we respected her when she came back 
in the fall with the knowledge of diets and formulas at her finger tips. 
Peg is enthusiastic and lively and we love her for it. 

Howard, Hazel Frances "Sweet Patootie" 

96 Center Street, North Easton, Mass. 
Birthday, June 22, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Glee Club. 
"Her laughing cheerfulness throws sunlight on all the paths of life" 

One who was ever willing to share our sorrows and our joys was Hazel. With 
a cheery good morning and a smile, she met each and every one, for all who 
knew her were her friends. When did Hazel do her studying or write her 
notebooks, we often asked, but she always got there. Her hands were never 
idle for her specialty was sewing, and how much could be accomplished over 
a week-end, few realized but Hazel. 

Hazel, we all know you will always be successful, even though teaching may 
not appeal to you as strongly as other lines of work. 



Howes, Mildred W. "Millie" 

Ashfield, Mass. 

Birthday, November 3, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts. 

"To have a friend is to be one" 
As we enumerate our friends, those of us who are privileged to know Mildred 
name her as being one of our choicest. We know that she appears dignified — 
but what fun lies behind that dignity! 

A true sport is she — taking life as it comes, getting enjoyment out of every 
bit of it. We often wonder, after seeing her constantly with Winnie for two 

years, just how she survives this year without her. But, there again her 

cheerful disposition — never failing — rises to the top and saves the day 
As a Y. W. C. A. supporter, she has done much; her untiring efforts having 
contributed greatly toward its success. 

Hoxsie, Ettie May "Et" 

Gilbertville, Mass. 
Birthday, July 22, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Delegate to Maqua; Fine Arts. 

"For she is just the quiet kind, whose nature never varies" 

The doors of F. N. S. are always open to girls like Ettie. She is a quiet, con- 
scientious good worker — one of whom any Normal School would be proud. 
Ettie is never too busy to entertain. She is hospitable and cordial to her 
friends at all times. 

When "Ettie" goes down Normal Hill for the last time, the best wishes for 
success from all the "Normalites" go with her. 

Hutchinson, Elizabeth Baker "Beth", "Betsy", "Bethie" 

1235 Morton Street, Dorchester, Mass. 
Birthday, March 20, 1901 

Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Treasurer Middle Junior 

"Haw! Haw!" Yes, you're in Peirce Hall and "Beth," up in Aster Alley, has 

found something funny to laugh at. What would Aster Alley be without 

those occasional outbursts to break the silence? 

"Back again, Bethie?" 


"Another quiet week-end at home, and who was it this time to steal your 

warm heart.'" 

You see, "Beth's" favorite "pastime" is falling in love, but, as yet, there have 

been only one or two serious cases. "Cheer up, 'Betsy dear,' true love never 

runs smooth." 

Here's to you, "Bethie," you may (?) give long faithful years of service to 

your Commonwealth as a successful teacher — you may — but maybe not 

in the true meaning of the phrase. 

Here's hoping . . . for success. 



Jameson, Alice "Jimmie" 

lJBrook Street, Brookline, Mass. 

Birthday, July 30, 1902 

A'Kempis; Fine Arts; Vice-President Senior Class, Faculty 

Editor of the Dial; Student Council; Chairman of Senior Prom 


"To those who know thee not, . 
No words can paint; 
And those who know thee, 
Know all words are faint." 

"Hellol Hello! there! Hello everybody!" 

Does one need ask from whom that happy, cheerful voice comes? Of course 

not! For who else could it be but our own "Jimmie" with her winning smile 

— the one and only "Jimmie" of whom F. N. S. can boast and the most popular 

girl at school. 

Her inexhaustible enthusiasm has never been excelled, for whatever she does 

is done whole-heartedly, whether it be jazzing a piece on the piano or reciting 

in Geography. 

Jenkins, Marion E. "Jenks" 

391 Belmont Avenue, Springfield, Mass. 

Birthday, July 23, 1900 

U. F. R. of Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Des Moines 

Delegate; Silver Bay Delegate; Maqua Delegate; Property 

Manager Middle Junior Play; Summer School. 

"A girl we love for what she is" 
From the first of her Junior year through those memorable days of the Senior 
year, she has had a part in many phases of school life. She is at times a silent, 
studious, serious person; again, her sincere, sympathetic and unselfish advice 
influences others, and the sunshiny, sociable nature of hers makes friends 
and keeps them, in spite of the tendency which she has to sarcasm. 
Marion loves good fun. Laugh! What a ripplel It is quite contagious but 
we don't mind. 

Seniors, Middle Juniors and Juniors join in wishing her the very happiest 
of success. 

Johnson, Jennie Beatrice Blanche "Jen" 

Edmund Street, East Longmeadow, Mass. 
Birthday, June 8, 1902 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Girl Scouts; Fine Arts. 
' 'She's a jolly good girl. 
And liked right well by all." 

"Jen" and "Hat" are the best of pals. Wherever "Jen" may be, "Hat" is 
sure to be there. How does she ever live through the long week-ends without 
her? Surely, the letters which she gets are the only live-savers; for we've noticed 
they come in large numbers and are as good as any small encyclopedia. 
She certainly has the faculty of keeping her notebooks ahead of the game. 
Also in keeping the rules, for she is always in bed at ten and never rises until 
seven in the morning for fear of breaking them. 

Who could want a better pal? She is never idle a moment, but always doing 
for others and thoughtful of all. That accounts for her many trips to the 
training school (?) 

"Here's to Jennie's success, 
When she leaves our F. N. S." 



Kinney, Myrtie Esther "Miss Skinny" 

243 Purchase Street, Milford, Mass. 
Birthday, June 27, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club. 
"She has the truest, kindest heart" 

Yes, Myrtie is that clever girl from Milford. If there is anything you want 
to know about sewing, just ask her. She is the kind that not only tells you 
how, but shows you, and we all know she will make a great success as a sewing 
teacher. When things go along unevenly, Myrtie always keeps calm and 
this characteristic is going to be a great help to her in the future. Myrtie 
does not like to stay here week-ends, as a rule. Funny, what is the significance? 
Perhaps there is some attraction in Sinwood. But when she does stay here 
week-ends, the minute the "Bell" rings she is ready to go. 

Klein, Mabel Esther "Mae" 

Natick, Mass. 
Birthday, August 22, 1902 
Art Editor of Dial. 

"Brighten the corner where you are" 

Is that Mabel? It sure is. Don't you hear that infectious giggle? We certainly 
appreciate Mabel up here at F. N. S. It would have been pretty serious 
without her. But that isn't the only way Mabel has helped us up here, for 
Mabel is artistic and is always helping some poor unfortunate who simply 
"can't" draw. In fact, you'll always find her helping somebody whether it's 
lending her cooking outfit or taking somebody to the movies. Some of the 
success of the commuters' kitchen has also been due to Mabel. We wonder 
where she finds time to do all the studying she does. 

Mabel is one of our cute girls too. No matter what she puts on, she always 
looks well. Her big blue eyes help a lot. We are very confident she will 
make a successful teacher, because of her love and understanding of children. 
May you have the best of luck, Mabel, in your future life. 

Lane, Alice Josephine "Al" 

Hingham, Mass. 
Birthday, February 2, 1902 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club; Orchestra; 
Harvard Basketball Team. 

"Al" used to hail in from Hingham every Sunday evening last year, but this 
year it hasn't been as often. — Kind of a girl? — Just the kind for a friend, 
good-natured — a good sport and always willing to help a "fellar." What 
would we | have .done without "Al" to decorate the dining room for both our 
proms? "Al" always knows which way to turn when she is in need of a good 
escort to take her to dinner when in town. Aster Alley would have been 
sort a'dead without "Al" and "Rene" to do stunts occasionally. Here's 
hoping we meet often "Al" and best o'luck either in the dairy or the school- 



Lawrence, Alice May "Al" 

68 South Oak Street, New Bedford, Mass. 
"Better be small and shine, 
Than be great and cast a shadow." 

"Al" is one of the small girls in our class, who probably believes in the proverb 
that the best things come in small packages. "Al" is apparently one of our 
shy girls; but you never can tell until you know her. She is always happy 
and has a smile for everyone. One with "Al's" abilities is certain to achieve 

Leonard, Mabel S. 

Marshfield Hills, Mass. 
Birthday, February 4, 1900 
Y.W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"This world is so full of a number of things 
I am sure we should all be as happy as kings." 

Mabel is a quiet girl, but beneath that calm exterior one finds a good hearted 
person, always ready for a good time. When you hear a strange, peculiar 
"Squeal," you may be sure Mabel is around. We all wish you the best of luck 
whether at teaching, or . . . 

Leonard, Ruth E. 

Marshfield Hills, Mass. 
Birthday, February 2, 1902 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"Love, sweetness, goodness, wherever her person shines" 

To know Ruth, is to know a very sincere and lovable girl, who has a wealth 

of counsel, sympathy and love for others. She is conscientious and succeeds 

in accomplishing what she plans on doing. Although one of our quiet girls, 

appearances are sometimes deceiving. 

Ruth displayed her artistic ability on her poster, which had a ship on it that 

made you want to go sailing in the briny deep. 

Here's to your success for the future. 




Lewis, Mary Ursula "Mamie", "Buzz" 

27 Baker Street, Foxboro, Mass. 

Birthday, February 15, 1902 
"True it is, she has one failing — 
Had ever woman less? 

6:35 A. M. It's time to get up. 

6:45 A.M. On the train for Framingham Center. — 

Who but Mamie could do that? We won't stop here to describe the dignified 

manner in which she gets from her back door to the train, but we could make 

it interesting. . 

"Mamie" is what we call a good sport. Whether we want to study, go to the 

movies, or buv Jellv Doughnuts, she is with us. . 

Sometimes she forgets herself and tries to be "aristocratic, but we soon bring 

her back to the right "atmosphere." 

There is one thing that we are sure of and that is that she will make a success 

at the teaching profession. We all wish her a brilliant future. 

Lothrop, Esther 

77 Washington Street, Leominster, Mass. 

Birthday, December 2, 1898 

Y. W. C. A.; Treasurer Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Mandolin Club. 

"Good are thy gifts, but better than all gifts is thy friendship" 
Who is playing? It is Esther and Ruth playing on their mandolins; trying to 
lift the cares off our shoulders after study hour. They can do it too if the 
increasing number in the audience is any indication. If there is any fun 
going on, Esther is right there to participate in it and add her just share. 
She mav be a little bit shy, but she has a list of friends which is a great deal 
longer than she is tall. She has a way, which we all envy, in keeping her work 
right up to date. We are all sure that she will meet with the greatest success 
and be a credit to our dear old school. 

Lovett, Ada M. 

Stockbridge, Mass. 
Birthday, August 5, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Silver Bay Delegate; Fine Arts. 

"To stand by one's friends to the uttermost end, 
And fight a fair fight with one's foe, 
Xever to quit and never to twit, 
And never to peddle one's woe." 

Aria is a very quiet girl. She is always ready when you need a helping hand. 
Ada likes to read. She has had a hard fight this year at F. N. S., but do you 
ever hear her complain? Xever. 



Lowden, Julia Nickerson "Julie", "Sliver" 

86 Barrows Street, Dedham, Mass. 
Birthday, July 17, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Maqua Delegate; Fine Arts; Mandolin Club. 

"In time there is no present, 
In eternity no future, 
In eternity no past, 
We laugh, we cry, we are born, we die; 
Who will riddle me the how and the why?" 

Heard on Aster Alley, "Wouldja! wouldja! if you were me?" Who could 
mistake that for anyone but our "Julie," The pride of Aster Alley. Happy 
as the day is long and forever with a new joke or funny poem on the tip of her 
tongue that falls off as soon as Aster Alley is reached. 
But "Julie" will never be quite happy until she enters the M. G. H. 

Mac Donnell, Helen L. 


9 Saint James Street, Roxbury, Mass. 
Birthday, February 17, 1901 
A'Kempis; Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts. 
"Then cast away care, let sorrow cease; 
Help everyone, be happy." 

This saying is very appropriate for Helen. No matter what problem you 
might have, "Mac" is always ready to help you. Though we seldom find her 
busy, we wonder how she always has her work in on time. Just ask Helen 
why she doesn't spend week-ends at F. N. S. With her sunny disposition she 
is bound to succeed in whatever she undertakes. Here's to you, Helen, best 
wishes and good luck, for a truer friend can never be found. 

Mahoney, Mary S. "Mollie" 

192 Elliot Street, Newton, Mass. 
Birthday, September 17, 1903 
A'Kempis; Fine Arts. 

"There is only one way to be happy, and that is to tnake somebody 
else so" 

"My Land!!"— Why. who's that? That's "Mollie," of course. What would 
F. N. S. be without this beautiful brown-eyed Susan from Newton. The 
commuters' simply couldn't exist without her. Mollie is ever ready to lend 
a helping hand, and her sympathy is always appreciated. We all know where 
to go, whether our object be to receive advice concerning Geography or to 
find out the latest attraction at the theater. "Just find Mollie," is the watch- 
word. Who else but "Mollie" could wade thru the snow all the way from 
Newton in the winter and still be on time for school? Why we, her classmates, 
boast of the fact that our "Mollie" didn't lose a pound during these trying 
winter months. 

We know you will make a successful teacher, "Mollie," even though we see 
you often poring over lengthy letters from — ? We wish you the best of 
luck and know that your pupils will love you as much as we do. 



Mannion, Eleanor Searles 

18 Summit Street, Spencer, Mass. 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts. 
"// a task is once begun, 
Never leave it 'til it's done." 

Eleanor is one of our girls who is not here week-ends, consequently, we do 
not know her real nature. She likes a good time when it is time for play. 
She is very faithful with her school work as well as that at the Spencer Tele- 
phone Exchange where she works week-ends. Eleanor is willing always to 
give a helping hand to her friends. She tells us that she likes teaching. We 
all wish her success in her future career. 

Marble, Marion Elizabeth 

Westbrook Farm, Woodstock, Vermont 

Birthday, February 7, 1900 

V. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club; Middle Junior 


"When we shall take one backward look off yonder where our 

journey ends, 
I pray that you shall be as glad as I shall be that we were friends." 
Who said Woodstock? Where is it? Ask Marion! She'll tell you all about 
that little, select, farming community 'way up in Vermont. She'll tell you 
how all the cows and chickens are! And, speaking of "chickens!" Do we 
remember our feed! I should say so! 'Specially the interruption. 
Marion's favorite pastime is going after male — I mean — mail. It's all right, 
Marion, you usually give us our share. 

Marion really is a serious girl — she's rather apt to "show us up" in class, 
for she always knows her lesson. Here's wishing you all the success possible, 
Marion — I know you'll get it! 

Martin, Lillian May 

Hopedale, Mass. 
Birthday, December 16, 1901 
"Few things are impossible to diligence and skill" 
Yes. this is "Lil." Tall and slender, she moves serenely on her way with calm 
unruffled brow. And no wonder she is so much at peace with the world, for 
what has she to worry about? Nothing. "Lil" always has her lessons, not 
only done, but thoroughly done. And thoroughness, you know, seems to be 
a minus quality with most of the rising generation. 

Please don't get the impression from the foregoing information that "Lil" is 
an unapproachable person. Far be it from my thoughts to give any one such 
an idea of fair Lillian. Altho', at first glance, you would hardly think it. "Lil" 
is a good sport, ready and willing to help anyone, either in studying or in having 
a bit of wholesome fun. If you don't believe it, just take a look at the twinkle- 
in her eye sometime. We know "Lil" will be a splendid teacher and our best 
wishes go with her. 



Martin, Sadie Morrow 

Woodlawn Street, Clinton, Mass. 
Birthday, March 7, 1902 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"I'll not confer with sorrow till to-morrow, 
Bid joy shall have her way this very day." 

With a good word for everyone, no cares, no worries, optimistic, Sadie has 
her place in our hearts. She just loves fun and just mention a new adventure 
to her and she's with you to the end. There are many things Sadie likes; 
such as riding, hiking, camping and rowing. Altho' only two years are spent 
at F. N. S., we know Sadie will never forget her many friends and the good 
times here. 

Sadie doesn't believe in working her head off, but she surely gets her work 
done and well done, too! Her jolly, pleasant manner will help her along the 
path to her dreamed-of-future. We all will vouchsafe that Sadie couldn't 
be anything but a success as a teacher, a Westerner, or anything she chooses 
to be. Our thoughts will be ever with you, Sadie! 

Mattfield, Hester Reed 


Dover Street, South Natick, Massachusetts 
Birthday, September 24, 1903 
W. C.A. 

"And he seems to hear her charming voice 
Singing in the village choir." 

Hester is one of those quiet girls who says little but does a great deal more. 
She is a conscientious girl, always faithful in her work. Her motto is, "What 
you can do today never put off until to-morrow." She certainly lives up to 
her motto, for you will sometimes see her doing work weeks before time. Al- 
though Hester does not seem to be especially fond of music class, she delights 
in rehearsing her charming voice in the village choir at Wellesley. We wonder 
why? We have no doubt that she will make a fine teacher and we all wish 
her the best of luck in her own school. 

M'Carthy, Marion E. "Mae" 

58 Main Street, Framingham Centre, Massachusetts 
Birthday, July 7, 1902 

"A friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of nature" 

"What is mine is yours." Surely, that applies to Marion, for she is the most 
obliging, most sympathizing and best-hearted pal we have had at F. N. S. 
She will furnish you with anything from a pair of white flannels to a marcel 
wave, and in case of an ice storm, or a late party, she will supply you with 
a bed. Although Marion's "outside interests" are few, we know that her 
attention is chiefly attracted to a strange "Clinking" disturbance, which 
occurs two or three times a week. However, Marion does not permit this to 
interfere with the preparation of her geography lesson. Well, Marion dear, 
we wish you the best of luck in "the profession."

137 West Street, Medford, Mass. 
Birthday, August 16, 1901 
Secretary A'Kempis Club; Treasurer A'Kempis Club; Fine Arts; 
Summer School. 

"Though losses and crosses 
Be lessons right severe, 
There's wit there, You'll get there, 
You'll find n'ae other where." 
What would we do without Grace's ready wit? Classes would indeed be dull 
without the spontaneous outbursts from the side; often, no doubt, enlightening 
to faculty as well as to students, and who's the latest "crush?" She can be 
serious too! Just note her executive skill at an A'Kempis meeting. Just keep 
your wit and humor with you, Grace, and you'll keep on making people happy. 

McEvoy, Irene Rita "Rene" 

Sears Road, Southborough, Mass. 
Birthday, July 24, 1901 
A'Kempis; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts; Summer School. 

"We have much to enjoy in the quiet and retirement of our own 

"Rene" is faithful, conscientious, and loyal. When in doubt about the assign- 
ment, ask "Rene," she knows and already has it done. She commuted our first 
year, so we did not really know her until our Middle Junior Year and then 
we found she had a real sense of humor. We all know Irene will succeed 
because of her faithfulness to duty. 

McGorum, Ruth Isabelle 

Highland Street, Natick, Massachusetts 
Birthday, June 21, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club; Mandolin 
Club; Club Editor of Dial. 

"With a cheery word, and roses fair, 
Ruth scatters sunshine everywhere." 

Is study hour dull on third floor? Never mind, Ruth and Esther will give us a 
concert after nine and who wouldn't be cheerful when "sling-a-de-ink" is 

Really, there is hardly a problem that Ruth doesn't help in solving; whether 
it is to serve a dinner or to weave baskets. With such a capable friend, our 
troubles quickly fade before Ruth's ready sympathy and understanding. 
Your smile is worth a lot, Ruth, keep it to brighten the path of others as you 
have ours at F. N. S.

Deerfield, Mass. 
Birthday, February 24, 1902 
A'Kempis; Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"Her hand is ready and Willing" 

In spite of her quiet and unassuming manner, "Ev" has left a favorable im- 
pression upon the class of '22. "Ev's" highest ambition is to become a master 
of art. If a person's ability as an artist is measured by the time spent on 
drawing or the amount of work turned out, "Ev's" on the way to make the 
admirers of the old masters sit up and take notice. However, "Ev" doesn't 
spend all of her time making pretty designs. Have you anything that worries 
you? Yes? Well, then, take it to "Ev." She'll fix you up. One is indeed 
lucky to be able to claim "Ev's" friendship. So here's to "Ev" and her future 
with "Art!" 

McQueston, Carolyn "Mac" 

34 Marston Street, Lawrence, Massachusetts 

Birthday, April 16, 1901 
Senior President; Y. W. C. A. Cabinet; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; 
Student Council; X. P. K. Vice-President; Girl Scouts; Summer 

"Push on — keep moving" 

is Mac's motto, not only for herself but for all others. Is she capable? Well, 
the only thing she couldn't do was to get Sue up mornings at Canning School. 
Mac has done everything from stoke fires to lead the class as its President, 
and has made a great success of it all. We'll all admit Mac and her other 
half Si are inseparable, but we wonder how soon Mac will follow in Si's foot- 
steps! No need to wish her success in the future, for she'll surely have it. 
Here's to Mac — a good sport and the best class President ever! 

Merrill, Caroline Frances 


Amesbury, Mass. 
Birthday, February 15, 1903 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Dial Staff; Glee Club. 
" Happy art thou as if every day thou hadst picked up a horseshoe" 
Behold our fair Caroline! the most bewitching little merrymaker we have. 
There's many a noble speech and funny word that comes from her lips; those 
who have never lived in her corridor have missed a sympathetic companion, 
as well as many aches and pains from excessive laughter. Stunts are Cal's 
specialty — will you ever forget that stunt show? 

When it comes to teaching, we'll have to admit that her sunshiny disposition 
wins the affection of all. If her work in the outside world is carried on with 
as much enthusiasm as that at F. N. S., we are sure of success in anything she 
attempts in the future. 



Mitchell, Edith May "Miss Smitchell" 

Unity, Maine 

Birthday, December 22, 1896 

"Serene and resolute, calm and self-possessed" 

We are always sure that Miss "Smitchell" will save the day for us with a 
brilliant recitation when all other hopes have fled. She is rather retiring, 
sober, .very attentive, and always knows her lessons as well as Mr. Archibald 
knows the Hallelujah Chorus. There is one thing that Edith has learned here 
which she will never forget — that you cannot tell the sandy composition 
of a country by just looking at a map. 

We are mighty glad you came, Edith, for otherwise we would not have known 

Mullens, Frances Mary "Fran" 

99 Franklin Street, Framingham, Mass. 
Birthday, May 1, 1902 

"She's all my fancy painted her; 
She's lovely, she's divine." 

"Fran, "as we generally termed this quiet, unassuming miss, is neat in appearance 
and does her work well. The two subjects from which she received the most 
enjoyment were handwork and the phase of "gym" known as showers. When 
seen in her most characteristic pose, she has a hat in one hand and a bag in 
the other, running over the back hill for the 2:30 car. 

Even though small, "Fran" will have a well-disciplined schoolroom because 
we all know what good work "I's" will do. Who could wish for a better pair 
of sparkling-brown orbs than "Fran's." 

Murdock, Gertrude Clement 


632 Canton Avenue, Milton, Mass. 
Birthday, December 12, 1902 
A'Kempis, Fine Arts. 

"Better to be small and shine — 
Than big and cast a shadoiu." 
If "Page and Shaw" could box some of "Trudie's" sweetness, the price of 
their candy would sail skyward. Her quietness is in direct relation to her 
sweetness; moreover, if it weren't for "Trudie's" bewitching blue eyes, we might 
almost think her demure. 

But, all things considered — she is a delightfully comfortable person to have 
around. If she holds the hearts of her pupils the way that she holds ours, 
we can only say that they are mighty lucky. 



Murdock, Harriet Marie 

632 Canton Avenue, Milton, Mass. 
Birthday, September 22, 1901 
Fine Arts; Glee Club; Summer School. 
"Splendidly capable 
Her career awaits her." 

A steady tread, a smile, sparkling eyes and Harriet approaches. She doesn't 
need an introduction, for she is known as one of our most capable girls; loved 
by all, ever willing and ready to help anyone. In future years, we expect 
her to be back as Dr. Meier's assistant!! Is Harriet ever downhearted? Well, 
I guess not — and when you hear a laugh, that's all her own, you may be sure 
she has seen the funny side of something. We hear she made good use of her 
slippers at summer school. How? Ask anyone who was here. We have 
missed you week-ends, Harriet, but why should you stay? Those rosy cheeks 
and that black hair are sure to attract! 

Murphy, Marguerite Lillian 

67 Fiske Avenue, Waltham, Mass. 
Birthday, October 26, 1902 

Y.W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"So shines a good deed in a naughty world' 1 

No! to look at her, you would never guess it. She isn't as quiet as she seems. 
She is always ready for fun, and yet when classes are at hand she is just as 
ready for work. We discovered that fact when as a practice teacher she made 
a great success. 

And another thing! Marguerite is always ready to help. If anyone needs 
her, she is sure to be at hand, provided it isn't a week-end. That's the time 
when she almost always bolts for home. She is a corking all-round girl and 
we are sure she will make a great success of her teaching. 

Murray, Esther Pratt 

West Dennis, Mass. 
Birthday, December 17, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Treasurer Fine Arts; Secretary 
Senior Class; Student Council; Summer School. 

"Energy and determination have done wonders many a time" 
Who doesn't know our dignified little Esther whose auburn hair reflects the 
real radiance of her spirit? Many times when you hear ripples of laughter, 
you find Esther and Effie entertaining the girls with tales of their "orphans." 
Esther is original and artistic. Just a look into her room tells you that. She 
is also noted for being the "efficient one;" so if anything is to be carried out 
to a finish and done well, Esther is the one to do it.

Neary,' J. Lillian 

16 Upham Street, West Newton, Mass. 
Birthday, October 25, 1903 


A'Kempis Club. 

"To know her, is to love her" 

Sweet, demure and pensive are the words that best describe this dainty little 
maiden. She is known among us as the girl with the attractive blouses and 
faultless coiffure. 

"Lil" is a commuter and hence is hardly seen outside of school hours. She 
arrives barely in time for the first class and always makes it a point to catch 
the 3 o'clock car. This mystified us. at first, but the reason soon became evident. 
If "Lil" has the same effect upon her pupils as she has upon us. she will need 
no rod of iron with which to rule them. Her own personality will win the day. 

Newman, Viola May "Biff" 

Main Street, Sherborn, Massachusetts 
Birthday, December 10, 1901 
"Happy am I when from care I'm free; 
Oh, why aren't you all contented like me?" 

"Sweet Patootie" is her favorite saying and "study" is her byword. Although 
Biff just escaped being the "class" grind, we must give her the credit due a 
true friend and good sport. 

Never was she missing when "Boston" or "St. George" was suggested; on 
which occasions she indulged in her favorite pastime of getting lost in the sub- 
ways. We might also just mention Biff's extreme fondness for strange labels 
on her coat; and her peculiar taste for decorating black hats — which she 
exhibited on a memorable Sunday. 

So here's to a pal and a classmate. 

Whom we know will be a success 

In teaching, as in life's pleasures; 

May it bring you much happiness. 

O'Brien, Katherine E. "Kat", "K", "Katinkie" 

58 Chester Street, Worcester, Mass. 
Birthday, November 19, 1896 
A'Kempis; Fine Arts; Glee Club; Girl Scouts. 

"Mine honour is my life; both grow in one; 
Take honour from me, and my life is done." 
"Kat" is a quiet, demure girl if you do not abuse her ideals; but about these 
high ideals, she is very' sensitive and becomes almost loquacious in their defense. 
On Normal hill there is probably no one with a deeper appreciation of the 
finer things in life. — especially music and poetry. Does she believe in hurry- 
ing? Not at all; she was made for comfort, not for speed. Possibly her greatest 
trial is getting up in the morning, but because she is both capable and con- 
scientious, her future is bound to be successful. 



Ormes, Edith P. 

Lake Street, Norfolk, Mass. 
Birthday, December 12, 1902 
Fine Arts; Y. W. C. A. 
' 'It is a good thing to be rich, and a good thing to be strong, but it is 

a better thing to be beloved of many friends." 
Everyone who went to school with Edith knows what a wonderful girl she is. 
She is a friend worth having. Whatever the task to be done. Edith can do it. 
She goes to work with a right good will and sees the thing through from start 
to finish. She is always willing to help her classmates over the rough places 
and tries to do what she can for every one. Edith is always faithful to her 
work, never neglecting a thing. In spite of this fact, she finds time for outside 
work. She is a good sport and plays the game fair. Besides being a very 
clever teacher, she is also very clever with a needle. We all wish Edith the 
very best of luck where'er she goes. 

Page, Fay Russell 

Haydenville, Mass. 
Birthday, April 2, 1900 
Y. W. C. A. Cabinet; Lend-a-Hand; Maqua Delegate; Fine Arts; 
Glee Club. 

"There are loyal hearts, there are spirits brave, 
There are souls that are pure and true; 
Then give to the world the best that you have, 
And the best shall come back to you." 

When Haydenville sent Fay to Framingham. we wonder if they fully realized 
what a kindness they were doing us. She is one that is ever faithful to her 
studies, yet always ready for a good time — and why shouldn't she be with 
her happy disposition and sense of humor. 

Fay is kept busy as a worker for "Y. W.", for without her, who would have 
found the interesting speakers for each Wednesday. 

Paige, Susan Nancy "Sue", "Sukey' 

12 Kellogg Avenue, Amherst, Mass. 
Birthday, May 25, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Secretary X. P. K.; Glee Club; Harvard Cheer 
Leader; Summer School. 

' 'A smile for all, a welcome glad, 
A jovial coaxing way she had." 
When you hear the name Susan, you think of a girl who is a friend to all, jollv 
and lovable, a necessary addition to "Aster Alley." Ask the other girls of 
the alley how it was when she was ill. Susan's happiest pastime is making 
wire hat frames. How about it, Sue? 

For generosity and unfailing loyalty she can't be beaten. Here's wishing you 
the very best of luck, Sue, in whatever you attempt to do. 



Parker, Annie M. 

West Dennis, Mass. 
Birthday, June 6, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"Still waters run deep" 

Annie is a quiet, conscientious girl, always has her \Vork done and notebooks 
up to date. One only has to look at her work to see how neat she is. 
Perhaps you would conclude that being such a quiet, conscientious girl, Annie 
would not have time for fun. There you are mistaken, for Annie is not only 
eady for a good time, but she helps in giving it to others. 
Firm and steadfast, she proves a friend to us all. 


Paul, Lucille Emma "Si" 

Newport, New Hampshire 
Birthday, April 5, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts. 
"My true love hath my heart, 
And I have his." 

"What are you embroidering now, Si?" How strange it would seem to see her 
idle! "Si" makes all kinds of dainty things, from luncheon sets to bed spreads, 
because you see she is filling an I. K. W. box, (I know when) not an I. VV. W. 
box (I wonder when). But don't think she slights her studies, for "Si" always 
has everything done on time. Perhaps we don't see her "Bob"bing around to 
get the noon train to Newport. After house practice, it will be quite a come 
down for "Si" to cut down "Recipes for Fifty" to fit the needs of two! 

Payzant, Ruth Floyd "Buddy" 

386 Newbury Street, Boston, Mass. 
Birthday, June 20, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts. 

"Ah, me, 'tis strange that some should take to sighing, 
A nd like it well, 
For me, I have not thought it worth the trying, 
So cannot tell." 

Ruth and "Happiness" are very congenial companions. Furthermore, she 
isn't selfish with this good friend of hers; but, by a happy face, and cherry- 
word, shares her happiness with all who come in contact with her. Ruth 
has a great fondness for home and most of her week-ends have been spent 
there. Perchance that has an influence on her disposition — who knows! 
We congratulate the people who are to be associated with her, and we are 
glad to have had the privilege of her friendship.

Center Street, Danvers, Mass. 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

''Serene, resolute and still, 
And calm, and self-possessed." 

Is "Dot" as dignified and quiet as she appears to be? Not at all. For after 
you know her, you will find her to be full of fun and ever ready for a good time. 
She always manages to get her work done, and especially her sewing, which 
she loves. If in trouble with your sewing just come around to "Dot" and she 
will help you out. "Dot's" desire is to teach sewing, and we all wish her 
the best of success in the years to come. 

Phelps, Ruth Alice "Rap" 

Clavbrook Street, Dover, Mass. 
Birthday, March 24, 1902 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"Serene and resolute, calm and self-possessed" 

It is nice to have a tall and striking physique like Ruth's; but it is still more 
desirable to have a striking personality. Both of these are Ruth's, as any of 
her friends can testify. Most of us look upon her with a sort of awe, for she 
is pointed out as the girl who came back from practice teaching with three A's. 
Well, "Ruthie," it may have been simple, as you assure us it was, but it took 
your firm determination and unswerving purpose to accomplish it. May 
they always stand you in good stead.

20 Washington Street, Stoughton, Mass. 
Birthday, April 3, 1903 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Yale Basketball Team; 
Dial Staff. 

"She is no plug and yet she's clever 
And as for fan, you'll beat her never." 

"Hail fellow well met" is her password. Fun, frolic and athletics were meant 
for Esther. The way Polley fought for Yale just gave us an idea what "Pep," 
personified, looks like. There's a twinkle in her eye, too, that you can't mis- 
take. "Be on your guard." 



Prentiss, Doris Annie "Dot" 

100 Center Street, Danvers, Mass. 
Birthday, April 6, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Summer School. 
"Let me live in a house by the side of the road 
Where the race of men go by — 
The men who are good and the men who are bad, 

As good and as bad as I. 
I would not sit in the scorner's seat 

Or hurl the cynic's ban — 
Let me live in a house by the side of the road 
And be a friend to man. 

This must be "Dot's" motto, for she certainly is a friend to all. She is a girl 
who says little, does more, and helps all who need assistance. "Dot" and 
"Rusty" — Do you ever see one without the other? We wonder how "Dot" 
survived while "Rusty" spent her week-ends in Dedham. 

Rice, Phyllis Allegra "Phyl" 

Millbury, Mass. 
Birthday, January 18, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"She may look serious, 
And she does not look shy, 
But she's full of it 
'Twixt you and I." 

Here is one who is always ready to lend a hand and help a person out. but 
never do you hear what she has done from her own lips. Rarely do we see 
Phyl "on the hill" over the week-end. What can tempt you to leave dear 
F. N. S. Can it be just to see the family. Phyl, that makes you take that 
long trolley ride? Whatever line of work Phyllis undertakes, with the same 
determination and perseverance that she has shown at F. N. S., we feel 
sure that success will await her. 

Richardson, Helen 

Millis, Mass. 
Fine Arts; Y. W. C. A.; Glee Club. 

"For if she will she will, you may depend on't, 
But if she won't she won't, and there's an end on't." 
We didn't know much about Helen our first year here, as she commuted, but 
we were very glad to welcome her among our midst the second year. 
Did I hear someone calling Helen? Well, this may be study hour, but it is 
Monday night and Helen is sleeping. You know she went home over the 
week-end. Never mind. Helen, you have your good times at home, but you 
know how to work when you're here. You'll get there all right and luck be 
with you. 





Ridlon, Teresa Linda "Babe" 

48 Main Street, Somerville, Mass. 
Birthday, May 12, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"A truer, nobler, trustier heart, more loving, or more loyal, never beat 
Within a human breast." 

"Babe" is one of the smallest girls in the class of 1922, but there is a lot to 
her just the same. She is very conscientious, as many of us know who have 
seen her busily working away. Being one of the best needle workers here at 
school, she is to be greatly complimented. You just ought to see some of 
her products! "Babe" is one of the most thoughtful and kind-hearted of girls, 
and is always willing to help one who is in trouble. 

When it comes to having a good time, she is "right there." Nobody enjoys 
one better than our "Babe." Just ask any H. A. Senior in Peirce Hall.

"Sweetness personified" 

•'Tra-la-Ia-la-la" sweetly echoed through the Commuters' Alley. Thus the 
approach of Edith from the city of Marlboro was made known. Though 
small, demure, our "Edie," both socially and scholastically, ranks high in the 
estimation of us all. In addition to a charming personality, "Edie" sings 
pleasingly and also serves as most accommodating pianist for dancing in the 
"gym" at noon. It is hardly necessary to say that while "practice teaching," 
Edith was very successful, especially in a certain primary school in South 
Framingham. Here her musical abilities were fully realized, much to the joy 
of the children. Without a doubt, the class of 1922 is proud to claim her 
as one of its members. 

Rodan, Ruth Dalton "Billy" 

67 Monroe Street, Amesbury, Mass. 
Birthday, June 16, 1901 
Y. W. C. A. Cabinet; Fine Arts Club. , 

"For if she will she will, you may depend on't. 
But if she won't she won't, and there's an end on't." 

It is not often that we find a girl who is always faithful in her studies and who 
also joins in all our fun as well. Ruth is all of this. If a question comes to 
mind, ask Ruth and you'll get an answer no matter how difficult. As for a 
joke or a jolly good time, she is always right there. Parties are never allowed 
to interfere with the neatness of her room. She is always fond of outdoor 
exercise. Many a time we have seen her out for a hike. One day, she even 
reached the wilds of Northboro. We, her corridor mates in Horace Mann 
Hall, can hardly forgive her for the days when she used to disturb our peaceful 
slumbers at 6:00 A. M. Nevertheless, we will always remember her as a jolly 
good pal and a true, faithful friend. 



Russell, Mildred Frances 


454 Washington Street, Holliston, Mass. 

Y. W. 


Birthday, October 7, 1901 
C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Glee Club; Summer 

"God will not love thee less 
Because men love thee more." 

"Russ" is just the kind of a girl one would like to live with all of the time — 
a helpful, loving, and never-tiring friend. 

We all know her by her "Jazz," but that doesn't mean she can't be serious 
and thoughtful; for who doesn't remember the day she asked Miss Coss why 
one couldn't wash and rinse a stocking on one side before they washed it on 
the other. 

We wonder just how long "Russ" will stay with us in the teaching profession, 
but we do know that when "Mal"-(colm)s, she will not be able to resist temp- 

Silverthorn, Mamie Evelyn 

Main Street, Westboro, Mass. 
Birthday, October 29, 1902 

"Blue are her eyes as the fairy flax, 
Her cheeks like the dawn." 

Mamie is a very quiet, unassuming person, always ready to help anyone. We 
always wondered just why she and "Sully" couldn't possibly think of missing 
that 5 o'clock train. As they say, "Wonders can be accomplished in five 

She usually could be found in the Students' Room, but this year her visits 
there have been very few. Altho' Mamie has not been as talkative as some 
of the other members of her class, she promises to be a very successful teacher. 
We all wish her the best of luck. 

Skroder, Edith Margaret "Shrimp", "Shrimpo'' 

YVinchendon, Mass. 
Birthday, January 7, 1900 
V. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts; Summer School. 
"The secret of success is constancy of purpose" 

"Where's Shrimp?" "Gone down street after some more peanuts!" Yes, 
Shrimp and peanuts are a wonderful combination. 

By the way, Edith, do letters decorated by an artist have anv special meaning? 
Even tho she is a little girl, this good worker cannot be excelled in punctuality 
and neatness. We all can picture the model schoolroom she will have. With 
a model teacher, what else can one expect? We are proud to have such girls 
as Edith enter F. X. S., and we are still prouder to have them go out as am- 
bitious and capable as she. 




Slaiger, Edna Elizabeth "Eddie", "Ted", "Rosebud" 

86 Old Post Road, North Attleboro, Mass. 
Birthday, September 8, 1901 
A'Kempis, Fine Arts. 

"Like a gleam of sunshine on a gloomy day" 

In September, 1919, "Eddie," a quiet, modest girl with a pleasing and inviting 
smile, greeted us. It was not long before she had won popularity among her 
classmates and teachers. With this, as one of her great accomplishments, 
everything reigned in peace until the spring of 1921, when "Eddie" sought 
for more amusement than F. N. S. could give her. Letter writing became her 
favorite pastime. However, she is as faithful with her studies as with her 

We are glad we know you, "Eddie," and we all wish you the best of luck and 

Snow, Lucile "Snowy" 

6}4 Acacia Street, Cambridge, Mass. 
Birthday, July 28, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Grind Editor of Dial. 
"I aim not to be wondrous wise. 
Only to be jolly, in all folk's eyes." 

Lucile is one of those girls we just naturally love. Picture a girl who loves the 

out of doors and all of its good times with camping, hiking and tobogganing 

and you have "Snowy." 

Did you ever see her really worry about anything? "Life is too short," we 

can hear her say. Whenever we feel discouraged, she is ready with a word 

of cheer and can see a way out of all our difficulties. 

She is a girl well worth knowing and a friend worth having. We shall always 

remember her as a mighty good sport and a true blue girl. We are confident 

that she will make a successful teacher, and we all wish her the greatest success 

in whatever community she goes. 

Sowerby, Myrtle Ella "Myrt" 

2 Stowe Road, Marlboro, Mass. 
Birthday, May 9, 1903 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts Club. 

"May she never change, 
Except in name." 

A shriek! A squeal! Dead silence! From whence the cause of all this? Why, 

from whom else could it come but "Myrt," who has become bored again with 

the deadening quiet of the atmosphere of a Peirce Hall study hour! 

For wherever "Myrt" is, excitement surely prevails. If she "rushes" into 

your room, nothing more will be needed to cheer you up and chase away the 

bluest blues you ever had. 

Some of us have wondered what brought "Myrt" to F. N. S., but whatever 

the cause, we have certainly enjoyed her. We are sure that her rare personality 

will make her as popular with her pupils, and all others with whom she comes 

in contact, as it has with us. Good luck to you, "Myrt!"

Sparks, Dorothy Champlain "Dot", "Pat" 

Warren, Rhode Island 

Birthday, July 1, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Mandolin Club; Harvard Team; Tennis Tour- 

"/ want free life, and I want fresh air" 
Tho short, this bit of verse is most significant of "Pat." Since she first came 
to F. N. S., three long years ago, she has been most enthusiastic about the great 

"Pat" is also good in sports. She plays a fine game of basketball as we all 
know. None of us will forget the day she won the tennis championship. 
She is very kind to beginners too, and some day perhaps we can get up our 
courage to play a real set with her. 

"Music hath its charms," as "Pat" would readily say. Whether it's ragtime 
or classical music, she is "right there." 

Perhaps some of us wonder how she will settle down to teaching, but "Dot" 
is a girl with many "abilities" and success will surely prove her standard.

Stephenson, F. Madeline "Jerry" 

29 Albion Street, Somerville, Mass. 
Birthday, December 25, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Junior Class President; Fine Arts; Glee Club. 

"Good things come in small packages" 
This can be well applied to "Jerry," for she really is a little bit of a girl, but 
every speck of her is just as sweet as she looks. The Juniors of last year were 
up to the minute in all their doings under the leadership of "Jerry." 
The combination of a keen mind and dancing feet is rare, but Jerry possesses 
that union. She has danced her way into all our hearts, as she will into the 
hearts of her future pupils. To see her is to love her. 

Still, Mabel Florence "Spuddles" 

24 Brooks Street, Faneuil, Mass. 
Birthday, November 7, 1899 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts. 

"How much depends on him who stirred 
The souls of men with a cheerful word; 
And kept them brave by a jest absurd 
And brightened their days with laughter," 
A good-natured, jolly, fun-loving girl is "Spuddles." Tho quiet at times, she 
is always ready with a witty remark or joke. Mabel's week-ends spent in 
Framingham are few and far between. We wonder what home holds in store 
for her that she deserts us for Faneuil every Friday night. Whatever it is, 
we know she will be successful, and we wish her the best of luck. 










Stockholm, Emily 

20 Felton Street, Woburn, Mass. 
Birthday, November 21, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"Still waters run deep" 

She is tiny, oh, so tiny, 
As her nickname tries to show, 
So we'd rather call her "Speck" 
Than her other name you know. 

Now, when all is very quiet, 
And you think no one's around, 
You look up, and there behold her. 
With that smile, but not a sound. 

She is always very pleasant, 
And a friend, indeed, most true; 
Firm, when once her mind is made-up, 
That her plans be carried through. 


Sturdy, Ruth R. "Rex" 

Chartley, Mass. 
Birthday, September,^, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Maqua Delegate; Mandolin Club; 
Summer School. 

"Grace was in all her steps, heaven in her eye, 
For every gesture dignity and love." 

Listen! Methinks I hear the tinkling of a mandolin! It is just Ruth practising 
one of the new songs of the Mandolin Club. 

Ruth is very much interested in the activities of the Y. W. C. A. She can do 
most anything from directing stunts at the Socials to leading vesper service. 
She is rather dignified and has a very stately walk, but she is never found 
wanting when it comes to having a good time. She is fond of canoeing on 
the Sudbury! 'Member the rock we were stuck on one summer afternoon? 

Sullivan, Martha Elizabeth 

4 Union Street, Waterbury, Vermont 
Birthday, June 26, 1899 
A'Kempis; Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Mandolin Club. 
"She is one, most mild and sedate, 
Tending to think and to meditate; 
Enjoying much the hours she wanders, 
Trying to solve the problems she ponders. 
Perhaps the above can describe Martha better than my prosaic words. She 
is the serious, sincere, slow but prudently progressive type. Martha is not 
the kind that lets her work slip by. Whatever she does, she does with much 
thought and consideration. Hers is a conscientious mind. So here is all 
the luck in the world too you, Martha, and may your future days be happy 



Sullivan, Mary Elizabeth "Sully" 

Hopkinton, Mass. 
Birthday, May 6,»1903 
Business Manager of Commuters' Kitchen. 
"I say — 
Just what I think, 
Nothing more or less." 

That's just what "Sully" does. 

What careth she for the opinion of others? 

"Sully" likes to ride in cars, especially if the cars are bound for Marlboro. 

If a cause needs championship, send for "Sully." Her willingness to help 

will be manifested by her prompt appearance. 

She takes with her our best wishes forjher future work. 

Upham, Bessie Lillian "Bep" 

171 Shelton Road, Quincy, Mass. 
Birthday, November 19, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Delegate to Maqua. 

"I would look up, and laugh, and love and lift" 

Where's the crowd going? Oh, to Bessie's room, of course. It's Sunday 

night again and we must hear about her wonderful week-end. Just to watch 

her face while she tells it, is enough to fascinate one. The color comes and 

goes — but mostly comes. "Bep" is a splendid girl. How her needle does 

fly over those embroidered dish towels. But there is, of course, an "inner 


Can we ever forget those first days at Horace Mann Hall, when the strain's 

of "Bep's" ukulele drew us irresistibly to room 8? We were sure to "Hurry 


"Bep" was always interested in "mail." Hers usually consisted of letters — 

oftentimes packages. The latter, we were all privileged to enjoy. 

Vara, Adelyne B. "Mitzi", "Lina" 

108.5 Chestnut Street, Newton, Mass. 
Birthday, March 20, 1904 

"If a maid would be distinguished in her art, art, art, 
She must keep the men away from her heart, heart, heart." 
"Mitzi" is the black-eyed vamp from the part of Newton known as Upper Falls. 
You mean to say you don't know "Lina?" Why, just step up to the mirror 
and there you'll surely find her. Notice her black eyes and the way she uses 
them. Now you may easily understand why she is so interested in the movies. 
Tell her that Tom Meighan is on the screen today. Hear her say, "My dear!" 
Then watch "Mitzi" go down the back hill to catch the next car. 
Nevertheless, we all find "Lina" a most congenial companion, and we are 
confident that her happy and cheerful disposition, together with her other 
good qualifications, will make her teaching career a great success. 



Walker, Ruth Freeman "Rufus" 

Hanover, Massachusetts 
Birthday, October 2, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts. 

"There's a sunny side to the darkest road 
On the difficult journey of life." 

Ruth is not one of our "Little Girls," but, nevertheless, she's the "Baby" 
of our class. 

"Sing me to sleep." 
No one needs to ask who is playing, for that's Rufus's favorite song. _ 
Whether it's joy or sorrow, "Our Ruth," is always ready to share it with us. 
She is one of those girls who has the faculty of understanding most everything! 
Have you ever had one of those "Little Personal Talks" with Ruth? If you 
haven't, you don't really know her. 

Now, just one question, Ruth; "Is there some deep meaning associated with all 
those letters from 72 Mount Vernon Street?" 

Walsh, Mary Carroll 

89 Lexington Avenue, West Somerville, Mass. 
Birthday, January 10, 1901 
Fine Arts; A'Kempis. 

Oh, sweet, good-natured Mary, Your air, your smile, your motions tell 

You're so jolly and so true; Of womanly completeness; 

You're so loving, kind and merry, A music as of household songs 

That you make us all love you. In your voice of sweetness. 

The friendliest member of our class, 
Our Mary, so they say, 
She's nice to meet, she's always sweet, 
And cheers us on our way. 

We'll miss you awfully, Mary, dear. 
So will your many friends; 
And here's success to you, my dear, 
May you keep it to the end. 

Wheeler, Eirene 

"Rene", "Skinny" 

Concord, Massachusetts 

Birthday, April 18, 1901 

Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Middle Junior Class President; Harvard 

Basketball '21, '22; Dial Staff; Student Council; Orchestra; 

Middle Junior Play. 

"A life of beauty lends to all it sees 
The beauty of its thought." 

In every class there are those who, like the stars, seem to shine more brightly 
than the rest and surely Eirene is one of those stars in the class of 1922. As 
president of the Middle Junior Class, she carried us through the year success- 

Will we ever forget the splendid games of basketball she played last year and 
this year? Even if we were in the back row and couldn't see everything, we 
could always see Rene's lengthy form springing up into the air after the ball. 
There isn't much she can't do along musical lines. Did you ever hear her 
sing "The Love Nest" or the solo part of hymn 69? 

Eirene never gets ruffled or excited. She accepts everything calmly and that 
is the way she will accept success in life, which is sure to come. 



Whitford, Edith Laura "Edie" 

Danbury, Connecticut 
Birthday, September 17, 1898 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"That inexhaustible good nature, -which is in itself the most precious 
gift of heaven" 

A friend with all the virtues of a friend is Edith, thoughtful, reliable, and willing 
to help others always. Who will ever forget her noble work our'Middle Junior 
Year, for us and the suffering Armenians, working out protein calculations! 
We wonder if it is Edith's fondness for historical places that makes her week- 
ends so enjoyable, for no matter whether she spends them at Framingham, 
Jamaica Plain, or Springfield, she always has a "whizzy" time. 
Edith declares that she intends to teach after she graduates, in spite of the 
evidence to the contrary. 

Whiting, Olive May 

South Upton, Massachusetts 
Birthday, May 25, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts. 

"Order is heaven' s first law" 

Did you ever see anything out of place in Olive's room? Oh, no, she is one of 
the kind that keep things spick and span. Over week-ends you will find 
her either putting in order her already orderly room, or washing in the laundry. 
She is quiet, but always ready with a witty remark or joke. She is as faithful 
with her studies as she is with her friends, and being very conscientious, her 
future is bound to be successful. 

"Dot", "Dodie" 

Whitney, Doris Evelyn 

Salisbury, Vermont 

Birthday, August 2, 1901 

Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand; Fine Arts; Treasurer Girl Scouts; 

Glee Club; Summer School. 

"Lei me live in a house by the side of the road and be a friend to man" 

''Dot" is a delightful mixture of black eyes and wonderful disposition. The 
former are decidedly illuminating, the latter, almost equally so — in the face 
of obstacles. If the lady in question would only lose her* temper just once, 
we would feel much safer as to our own future destination. 
She's a mighty good sport; there is nothing "Dot" won't attempt and so far 
as we have discovered, few things she can't do, from skating to teaching. 
Everywhere she goes, "Dot's" friends will be legion, because no one who 
knows her can help but love her. Probably the reason for this is the fact 
that "Dot" hails from the mountains of Old Vermont. I think they must have 
instilled some of their beauty and space into the heart of her. There's no 
one like "Dot." 



Williams, Gretchen Constance "Billy", "George" 

58 Waldo Street, Montello, Mass. 
Birthday, August 8, 1901 
Y. W. C. A.; Fine Arts; Girl Scouts; Summer School. 
"For if she will she will, you may depend on't, 
But if she won't she won't, and there's an end on't." 

Gretchen is a calm, deliberate, moderate and determined girl, but way down 
under all this are other qualities which those who know her very well have 
discovered. Would you suspect a serious-minded girl like Gretchen of day- 
dreaming? Well, she does — and many of her dreams have Western settings. 
If the spell woven "down on Cape Cod" during the summer isn't too strong — 
Gretchen plans to face new work and interests — "out where the west winds 
call." Does she mean — "and let the rest of the world go by too?" 

Winters, Mildred Gertrude "Mil", "Sweetie" 

32 Pickett Street, Beverly, Massachusetts 
Birthday, September 23, 1900 
Y. W. C. A.; Lend-a-Hand (1); Fine Arts; Middle Junior Sec- 
retary; Middle Junior Play; Harvard Sub (1); Summer School. 
"When one is truly in love, one not only says it, but shows it" 

"Milly" hails from Beverly, and claims it to be the best old city on the North 
Shore, but still she has a fond liking for the good city of Springfield. We 
wonder why? Who can take the time to write to her every day? 
No one could ask for a better pal than "Mil," always ready to lend a hand 
and give advice to us all, whether it be a cooking outline, or plaited skirts. 
As for being a good sport, just ask the girls who camped with her at "Fort 
Pond" last year. 

Zendzian, Vanda Julia 


10 Taylor Street, Worcester, Mass. 
Birthday, September 28, 1900 
A'Kempis; Fine Arts; Glee Club. 

"Don't trouble trouble till trouble troubles you" 
"Van," as we have all found out by associating with her at F. N. S., is a girl 
with the will power to succeed. Nothing troubles her, she just goes right 
ahead. Life is too short to worry, isn't it, Van? 

We know she dearly loves to read, for her favorite expression is, "Got a book 
last night at nine o'clock and it is all finished now. Who has another good 
one like it?" 

To know her is to love her, for she is kind to all, and always ready and willing 
to help. 

We are sure she will be successful in whatever she undertakes, for she is so 
determined to succeeds 



Zilch, Margaret E. "Peg" 

Plainville, Massachusetts 
Birthday, March 23, 1903 
A'Kempis; Fine Arts. 

"As merry as the day is long — " 

A ripple of laughter, a succession of giggles. Who's that? Why. "Peg" Zilch, 
of course, forever laughing, forever happy and never worrying. Her chuckles 
have brightened many a dark corner; one of the favorite corners being in the 
depths of somebody's closet at 10:15 at night. 

As a teacher, "Peg" is right there. Didn't she get three A's in her practice 
teaching and what is more — don't the teachers know it? Yes, and that's 
not all. "Peg" can skate, swim, dance, hike, and be the best pal anyone could 
want. We all love "Peg" and we know her pupils will. Here's to your very 
best success, "Peg," and don't ever lose your happy nature.

Household Arts Specials 

Though small may be our number — it's only seven — our loyalty 
for F. N. S. is seventy times seven. 

We, the specials of 1922, have spent a most enjoyable year here. 
Our only regret is that it has been too short. Now, as the time flies 
onward to June, and we must think of leaving the school upon the hill, 
our hearts become sad ; but we cherish in them happy memories of days 
spent here. 

Even though we will not be with you next year, dear F. N. S., our 
thoughts will often turn to the girls and faculty who helped to make 
our year so joyous, pleasant and successful. 



Class Prophecy 

JANUARY first, in the year of our Lord, one thousand, nine hundred and 

After having served the public by teaching the youth of this country for 
thirteen years, and receiving a salary (like those so often quoted by Dr. Meier), 
and by carefully planning and executing said salary on the budget system, so 
efficiently drilled into us, by our diligent and worthy instructress, Miss Hall, I 
have saved — enough money to take a long-hoped-for trip around the world. This 
journal is an exact account of my experiences enroute. 

My trip began from our famous hub city, Boston. I travelled to New York 
by train, not the famous "Wolverine," but another nearly as efficient. Having 
purchased a generous supply of papers, magazines and candy before starting, I 
settled down comfortably, opened a box of confections, the cover bearing the label, 
"Babb's Kisses," which, by the way, are a rival to Durands; I then opened a paper, 
and was startled to find on the front page a large picture of Alice Cody (without 
freckles). Beneath the picture I read, "Chosen Art Editor of the Comic Section 
of this paper." That was food for thought, indeed, and it brought back a throng 
of memories of dear old F. N. S. 

The train stopped at Springfield, and there I saw a large sign betraying the 
fact that Marion Jenkins was the Dean of a finishing school, guaranteed to fur- 
nish young ladies with "sweet dispositions." How I wish it had been possible 
for some of us to take a course like that while we were young. 

As I arrived in New York late that evening, I was feeling the pangs of hunger 
quite keenly, and I, therefore, decided that the first thing I should do was find 
a place to eat. I, therefore, took out my budget book to see how much I had 
planned to spend on that meal, and much to my surprise and horror, I discovered 
I had only allowed myself fifty cents. I spent half an hour trying to decide where 
I could make a saving from some other item of that budget, but Miss Armstrong's 
teaching, "allow no exceptions," came forcibly to me, so I shut up my budget book 
with a lurking suspicion that perhaps I would have to be "extremely careful" what 
I chose for my menu. I searched for some time, and finally decided that the most 
I could get for my money would be toast and tea, something stimulating and easily 
digested, but hardly satisfying that Framingham appetite I had so early acquired. 
I was, therefore, quite surprised to find as I wandered into Greenwich Village, a 
strange sign bearing the words, "All You Can Hold for 50c. The Revised Child's 

Who owned it? Why, Betty, of course, with her hair still bobbed. She had 
for her capable assistant Priscilla Drew, whom I found was unmarried, but still 
charming. What a jolly reunion we had! And I learned much about some of our 
old friends. Ruth Walker, who had always been noted for her ability in finding 
clues, had won much praise in the Secret Service organization. And Grace Elias 
and Myrtie Kinney, through their fluency of speech, had established themselves 
as "Soap Box Orators on Women's Rights." 

The girls (altho not as young as they were once, they're still girls to me) told 
me that Dorothy Sparks had just won the title of world tennis Champion — noted 
especially for her love games. I wonder if that, also, was due to the influence of F.N. S. 






The time passed quickly, and I found that it was time for me to board the 
boat, so I regretfully bid them good-bye. 

They pressed a mysterious looking package into my hand as I left, and later 
when I opened it, it proved to be an exquisitely dainty blouse from the "Breau- 
McDonnell" shop, Importers. 

The boat left early the following morning, and I was up to see it start. I 
had formed that habit while at school, starting in on Cook Shift in Crocker Hall, 
and following it up with catching the early train while practice teaching. "Save 
a thing ten years and you'll have use for it," I had been taught; well, I had saved 
that habit thirteen, and I found its use at last, for whom should be strolling along 
the deck, just as early, but Frances Goodwin, with her two darling children — the 

She was on her way to visit her former roommate, Helen Doane — now in 
Africa, having successfully organized the Y. W. C. A. and Girl Scout organizations 
throughout that country. She was also the newly-elected grind editor of the 
"Jungle Deal." Mildred Flye was assisting Helen with the Girl Scouts. Fran 
was looking forward to a most interesting visit. 

The ocean voyage made one wish that Marian Graves and Ruth Gammons 
might be with us, they were always so interested in hearing about them while 
in school, but I was destined not to meet them then. 

Fran and I parted at the dock in England. I hailed a cabby and was driven 
to the hotel I had chosen, which was one of the best there. 

While waiting for dinner, I sat quietly looking out on the misty streets, alone 
with my thoughts. But soon I heard voices in the corridor — at first a faint mur- 
muring, but as they drew nearer, I was aware that an argument was taking place. 
It began to rain, and a faint rumbling made me realize that a storm was approaching. 

The voices in the corridor rose slightly, and I realized that it was a gentleman 
and lady who were disagreeing; the lady's voice seemed oddly familiar. 

Just then came a heavier roll of thunder, and I heard the man say in a stern 
and angry voice, "You shall not play that bally Jazz music in our hotel, Mary." 
And then that familiar feminine voice, "Oh, yes I shall." 

Then a crashing of thunder and a crashing of chords. But above the thunder 
I recognized the pianist from the music, for no one but Mary Connors could play 
jazz just that way. My suspicions were confirmed. Mary had married the owner 
of that famous English Hotel, and was trying to convince her husband that Jazz 
was the only real music known. 

The following afternoon, Mary took me for a drive into the country. She 
suggested that we stop for tea with a friend of hers, and I readily acquiesced. The 
•car turned into a roadway, bordering a beautiful estate, and within a few minutes 
we stopped before a charming country house. Our hostess was no other than 
Katherine Harrington. With "K" were Mildred Winters and Gertrude Fitts, her 
house guests. I was eager to learn of their experiences, and found that Mildred's 
teaching career had been short-lived, for "Where there's a Will, there's a way," 
they say. Gert was even stouter than at F. N. S. However, she is still under 
the Doctor's care. 

I left England for France, and of course Paris was included on my list of places 
of interest. French fashions being so much in demand, I had planned my budget 




accordingly, and, therefore, set out in search of a few real creations. I inquired 
for the best modistes, and was directed to one well-known shop, where, I was told 
the very latest of styles might be found. I entered the shop and was greeted 
with a, "Bon jour Madame," but I beheld not an unfamiliar face, for it was no other 
than our old friend Alice Clarke. She afterward confided to me that the only 
French she ever knew was what she had learned from the "A" division girls in 
Normal School. Alice told me some interesting bits of gossip about two of the 
Vocational girls of her class; for instance, Betty Carlson had made her fortune on 
the unique invention of, "How to run Fords on Hot Air." 

Doris Whitney, in the Sunny South, was running her long-hoped-for orphan 
asylum, for colored children. 

Alice, at the same time, called my attention to a large poster she was displaying, 
advertising a lecture on "The American Way to Eat." The following speakers 
and their topics were announced : 

Irene McEvoy — On "Over Feeding." 

Marion Carpenter — "The Best Way to Avoid Mai-Nutrition." 

Eleanor Mannion — "The Normal Diet." 

I decided that those girls must be a credit to our Normal, so that evening I 
went to hear them. After the lecture, they offered for sale copies of "How to Avoid 
Mai-Nutrition," edited by Edith Whitford and Eirene Wheeler. I had recently 
heard that Eireen, getting a little too close to Miss Borgeson one day, had slipped 
into her shoes, and was now matron of Peirce Hall, and Edith, whose accounts 
with her dentist ran so high, had received a life sentence. 

From France, I journeyed to Italy, and it was destined that there I should 
receive the biggest surprise I had encountered thus far. For whom should I meet 
there but Grace McDermott. She secretly confided to me that she was searching 
for an Italian husband. She noted my surprise at hearing such a statement; but 
I understood when she told that her love for onions at F. N. S. had so developed, 
that now she was in search of a husband who would enjoy garlic as much as she did. 

One afternoon, while there, we spent in the Art Galleries, and found that a 
new painting of the Madonna had been hung. Upon inquiring about it, we found 
that it had been posed for by Esther Murray, who had won much favorable criticism 
in that particular kind of work. 

I received several letters from the girls at this time. One from Vera Davis 
disclosed the fact that she had been several times divorced, but was now in Norway 
making further studies in literature. She also wrote that Mildred Russell, a 
well-renowned actress, playing the roll of Cleopatra, was suing for a divorce from 
her husband, "Mark Antony," because he objected to his raven-haired beauty 
becoming a peroxide blond. 

Agnes Connor also favored me with a note, stating that she had recently re- 
signed her position in Spencer, and had at last settled down with the mysterious 
man about whom we all wondered, but no one knew. She said that she had called 
on Blanche Boyle, now the efficient mother of five, who was even so particular 
that she was taking bacterial counts every three days from the dust on her dining 
room table. Evidentlv the same old Blanche!

Agnes had also received an announcement from Edna Slaiger, stating that 
at last she had accepted Billy. We hope she did it without any argument. 

Edna's chum, May Byron, believing not in self-dependence, is said to rule 
her husband and six children with an iron will. Another of their friends, "K" 
O'Brien, is in Ireland helping to settle the disputes which arise with other countries. 
An inherited characteristic may be the foundation of this occupation. 

Another letter I received at this time was postmarked India, and I was quite 
curious to find which one of my friends was making a sojourn there. It proved to 
be "Bid" Abbott, who, having taken "Pottery" for a special project, was finding 
valuable material among the ruins, but who informed me that her work was pro- 
gressing slowly, for she wrote pages and pages, only to "burn 'em." Her room- 
mate, Elizabeth Davis, had just announced her engagement for the seventh time, 
I believe. 

Marion Eldridge's new book on "Bright Remarks for All Occasions" had reaped 
her a full harvest of royalties. Another friend, Ruth Sturdy, and her husband, 
an absent-minded professor, had settled in Norton, helping each other to overcome 
the difficulty. Bid's letter was worth receiving, and I could almost hear her laughter 
echoing down the corridor once more. 

It was also in Italy that a new book on music was brought to my attention. 
"What to sing, How to sing, and When to sing," written by Marion Marble. 

An invitation was extended to me at this time to visit Switzerland, but my 
budget would not permit this added expense. So I asked my friend, who is per- 
manently settled there, to write me a brief sketch of her work. The following is 
what I received. 

Alice J. Lane (several degrees attached to this signature). 

A. Location — Switzerland. 

B. Occupation — Teaching Swiss to make American Cheeses. 

C. Training for this Work. 

1. Framingham Normal School. 

a. Chemistry Course. 

b. Bacteriology Course. 

2. Massachusetts Agricultural College — Summer 1922. 

3. Home Training — Father's Dairy. 

How like old times this outline looked. Al wouldn't have been a true Framing- 
ham girl if she had replied otherwise than with an outline. 

I now concluded — and that is another art I had received training for, while 
in school; for who could ever forget two years of Chemistry Conclusions — that 
my stay in Europe would have to come to its end, for in another month it would 
be reunion time back in Framingham, and what Framingham girl would miss that 
day? But there was one more country I couldn't resist, and that was China, for 
I had heard that several of my classmates were there. One in particular, Erne 
Goddard, whom we all remember as our class jester, had given her services as a 
Student Volunteer, and was doing much beneficial work among the Chinese. And 
Carolyn McQueston, thru her powers of persuasion and her dauntlessness, had 
enforced Women's rights in this country. 




While in Peking, I met Dorothy Bemis, who was in charge of a large restaurant 
there. She made plans to do this, during our last year in Normal. I accepted the 
invitation she extended, to be her guest while in the city, and it seemed quite 
like old times to be together again. 

Mabel Leonard was also in China, but I didn't have time to visit her, as she 
was living in a remote part of the country, having married a missionary. 

Once more I crossed the ocean, this time to travel with Dot Perley, Annie 
Parker, and Helen Richardson, having just finished their course in Spain. They 
were now experts in making Spanish omelettes, and were at last ready to set out 
in the cold, cold world to seek their fortunes. 

Landing at San Francisco, I went to visit Edith Skroder, who was efficiently 
running an orange grove there. The special kind she grew were packed in crates 
of "24 count." I asked her the secret of securing fruit of such mammoth size, and 
she replied, "Can it be possible you have forgotten your Biology experiments; we 
learned to grow wandering Jew, and why not apply it to Oranges?" 

This visit included a horseback ride into the mountains, and there, out in the 
wilds, we found Loraine Hayward, singing lullabies to little "wolves." She said 
that Hazel Howard had also visited her, and was still specializing in Palmer method. 
Loraine also gave me a list of the girls of our class that were happily married. 

Iyla Field — More "little" than ever. 

Lucille Paul— Who was "Robbed." 

Helen Burroughs — Ditto above. 

Helen Ballou — Who chose no other than Prince Albert. 

Terese Ridlon — Who always was a "Foxy" little girl. 

Harriet Draper — As usual, the "belle" of all. 

Beth Hutchinson — Whose twins Ken and Stella — nuff-ced. 

Of course, I couldn't come back to Boston without stopping to see Peg Holmes 
in North Dakota. There I found her running a goat farm — mixing "special foods 
for the little kids." 

Peg had two new bulletins, one on the discovery of "Vitamin Q," by Lucille 
Davis, Dorothy Hall and Ruth McGorum. This vitamin, if taken in proper kinds 
and amounts, would remove excess adipose tissue from the consumer. We wondered 
if its discoverers had personally experimented with it. 

The second bulletin announced another vitamin discovery made by M. Walsh, 
D. Prentiss and E. Lothrop — "Vitamin T." If the diet contains this in the proper 
kinds and amounts, the result will be addition of height. Illustrations showed 
the discoverers before and after experimenting, and the change was amazing. How 
much they would have appreciated this while practice teaching. For height adds 
to dignity — we've heard. 

One rainy afternoon, Peg and I went out for some of the late magazines, and 
asked especially for a copy of Life, but we were told that Life had come to an 
end, and that now it was supplemented by the Payzant Cracker. 

My visit to Peg was a very short one, and I again started eastward. 






The train made quite a long stop in Chicago, and many of the passengers 
went out to get tea, as it was late in the afternoon. I found an inviting little tea 
room, at which I decided to stop, and was very glad afterward that I made the 
decision, for its hostesses were no other than Eleanor Dow and Olive Whiting. 
They had much to tell me, and I was especially glad to hear of Marian Graves, a 
much-sought society lady, who was residing in Washington, D. C, with her husband. 
She, running a legion of organizations, at all times, is accompanied by her private 
secretary, whose main duty is to keep her from forgetting her many activities. 
Alice Day, living with her, is the most popular young woman in the city, renowned 
for those expressive- eyes — how well we all remember them! 

Two days later, at 10:00 P. M., the train finally stopped at Framingham. How 
familiar that name sounded, as it rolled in sonorous tones from the conductor's 
throat! But a guilty feeling came over me at entering the town at that late hour, 
for even tho it was many years since school days, that feeling still persisted, that 
I should be in bed by ten. 

A car for the Centre was waiting, and habit made me involuntarily put my 
hand into my pocket for tickets, but I was hastily reminded that I was no longer 
a student, but instead a forgetful old schoolma'am. 

The Centre looked the same as usual, and so did Normal Hill, except for a 
few new buildings which had been erected. The room I was to occupy was in the 
new Senior dormitory. I received a hearty welcome from the matron — a former 
classmate — Louisa Cotter, as "Rusty" as ever. 

The shock I received at seeing girls in the parlor and around the telephone 
booth at this late hour made me wonder as to Rusty 's ability as a matron. But 
she explained that the student government had affected a change in the rules of 
the school, so that now the girls retired at eleven-thirty instead of ten. 

I asked Rusty if any of the girls were back as teachers in the school. She 
replied that Harriet Murdock had been Dr. Meier's assistant for the past eight 
years, and that Floppy Hoeh had succeeded Miss Tarbox, while Martha Sullivan 
was in charge of the Millinery Department. 

The next morning, at reunion, I met the girls and many others I hadn't heard 
from. Julia Lowden was present, having run out from Boston, where she has a 
permanent position as model at Champlains. 

Mabel Still was also there. The Middle Junior Class was displaying her late 
tin can invention along with their projects. 

Sue Paige presided at the piano during the morning session, but in the after- 
noon she gave a demonstration of the cold-pack method of canning, using "Kold 
Prosso" jars and rubbers. Later, she took us for a drive in her new tan Cadillac. 
We were interested to find that many new shops had been opened in Framingham, 
that city having grown in size and importance considerably during the last quarter 
century. One of the new lunch rooms, the "Spectacular Howes," we patronized, 
because it was owned by Mildred Howes and "Speck" Stockholm. That was the 
long and short of it! 

Phyllis Rice and Vanda Zendzian had established a beauty parlor, noted for 
their original styles of hair dressing. 






We heard that an Information Bureau had been opened by Gretchen Williams. 
This was, indeed, true, and she supplied us with some especially interesting infor- 
mation regarding our faithful classmate, Fay Page. 

Fay, whose pleasing personality, high ideals, and thoughtfulness for all, had 
won our love and admiration at school, was now permanently settled in Framing- 
ham, doing much beneficial work in the community, and had also been chosen to 
succeed Miss Perry as honored leader of "Lend-a-Hand." 

Ada Lovett's occupation was indeed a worth-while one, for she was in charge 
of the "Delta," and making a real success of it. 

We looked up Ruth Gammons' record, too, and it was thus set down: "An 
accomplished musician and comedian. Winning much applause from her remark- 
able imitation of a fish." 

In the evening, we went to the Old Gorman Theatre for entertainment, and 
whom should appear in the first act of the vaudeville but Beth Darling — doing 
a Hawaiian dance, accompanying herself with a ukulele. 

My journey is completed, and in thinking it over, I can only say that, having 
discovered by operation and observation the aims and procedures of all my old 
classmates, I conclude that our experiences make a complex emulsion of joys and 
sorrows. But the future is still before us, and even the prophets are not absolutely 
sure of our destinies.

Regular Class Prophecy 

"./Is ^e years glide swiftly onward and we follow duty's call" 

THE passing of some years must be recorded since 1922 passed from workers 
for marks to workers for love — and money. The girls acknowledge no added 
years — one wouldn't expect them to. The days spent at F. N. S. are as a dream, 
and there are all kinds of dreams. 

Many of the girls had latent ability awakened at F. N. S. For instance, Rose 
Caron is now a fashionable dressmaker in Back Bay. "Peg" Zilch makes a pretty 
model, and luxuriates all day in gowns of finest workmanship. Dorothy Christopher 
supervises drawing and handwork in Marlboro. To think that she got her first 
experience at Apple Street! Agnes Coleman became interested in stars when she 
was a Junior, and now she studies astronomy at Wellesley. 

Bessie Upham used to embroider dish towels for her hope chest when she wasn't 
collecting bugs for Practical Science. Now she washes on Mondays, irons on 
Tuesadys, sweeps on Wednesdays . . . ! 

"I have one suggestion to make," we hear, as Ruth Rodan conducts her elo- 
cution class. Thus the influence of F. N. S. is felt. 

Doris Hathaway, Ettie Hoxsie and Lillian Martin are in Louisiana — raising 

Some of us have taken places in higher intellectual circles. Diana Dufault, 
as president of the N. E. A., leads many a debate on such subjects as, "Is Honesty 
an Instinct or a Habit?" Helen Hathaway sits in the National Congress. The 
first lady ambassador to the Hedjaz is Esther Austin. Esther always stood for 
conciliation, and had a rare gift for diplomacy. Many have stopped to admire 
the beautiful picture named, "Dawning" at the Art Exhibition. Mabel Klein is 
certainly on the road to fame. 

Harriet Holman works in the Woolworth Building. She couldn't help but aim 

1922 had its share of inventors. Alice Laurence bottles moonlight for dark 
and lonely evenings. Myrtle Gould has presented the teaching world with a device 
in the form of a platform. On this, the teacher stands, and by pressing a button, 
can move about the room at will. Ruth Leonard has an X-ray arrangement with 
which one may quickly get the "child's point of view." 

Some came by their life work naturally. Pauline Ackers owns a restaurant 
in Ashland. It is hard work but — Pauline has the "inner urge." Carolyn Breed 
is investigating recent spirit manifestations in Jordan Hall. Adeline Vara has a 
dressmaking establishment in Southboro, and next door to her Mary Mahoney 
keeps a very select millinery shop. 

Doris Chace is still with Ziegfeld's Follies. She chaperones the more frivolous 
chorus girls. 

Marion Gaffney has made a fortune salvaging hairpins on Normal Hill. The 
new "Outline on History Methods," by the Misses Neary and Mattfield, has just 
been accepted by the Massachusetts Board of Education. 

Alice Jameson teaches penmanship by the inverted method. She says it re- 
quires only a little skill, and that perseverance will do it. 




Of course you have read Jennie Johnson's article, "If Report Cards Come, Can 
Fond Mothers Be Far Behind." 

Gertrude Murdock, as principal of the "Lyman School for Boys," remains a 
living example of "happy though teaching." 

Mamie Silverthorn poses for the ad, "Keep That School-Girl Complexion." 

There are many changes at F. N. S. Athletics have an important part in 
the school life. Katherine Burns coaches baseball. Mary Sullivan is golf in- 
structor, while Dorothy Cahill teaches ballroom dancing. There is a bimonthly 
school paper, the "Note Book" by name. Katherine Cheney is the faculty editor. 
Marion McCarthy is student advisor. 

Perhaps you have wondered at the sudden return to the Virginia Reel and 
the Minuet. All credit is due to Sophie Adelson and her dancing girls at Keith's. 

Ruth Griffin busies herself with photography. When asked if it were difficult 
work, she answered in the negative. "It is a snap," she said. 

Valuable material called, "Tacks and Spikes and Their Use in Modern Society," 
has been written in pamphlet form by Sadie Martin, and is now ready for 

Ruth Phelps has a private kindergarten in Washington. One of her assistants 
is Edith Rives, who supervises the "free play" periods. 

There are less children absent at White's Corner since Irene Barber was ap- 
pointed truant officer. 

June Broadhurst is teaching in Czecho Slovakia. Checks always attracted June. 

Everyone reads Beatrice Brown's joke column, called the "Blue Print," in 
the "Raveler." 

The footlights called three of our number. Blanche Cormier is with the 
Midnight Frolic Company. Frances Mullens is appearing in, "The Life of a 
Commuter." Marguerite Murphy is pronounced, "Comedienne par excellence" 
by those who have seen her in the sequel to, "Ten Nights in a Bar Room" — "Twelfth 

Elizabeth Facey, Alice Bushnell and Evelyn McNerney have answered the 
call of the wild. They are ranching in Montana. Girls, beware of the movies. 

Madeline Stephenson has been known to attain some high positions in life. 
She runs the air mail route between Boston and Chicago. 

Myrtle Sowerby has a private "gym." There are no dumb-bells in it. 

There are teachers' aims and pupils' aims, but our "Ames" is a special reporter 
of educational reporters. 

Edith Ormes works for the Victor Co. She has made a record for herself 
as secretary to the president. 

Watch your front door now, Caroline Merrill is in this district demonstrating 
spinning wheels. And before you know it, she will persuade you that you need one. 

There was an "ad" in this morning's Toast, which read — "House Parties 
Chaperoned. Special Rates to Normal Students." It was signed Lucile Snow. 

Viola Newman and Mary Lewis revise time-tables for the N. Y., N. H. & H. 
Railroad Co. 

Esther Polley has written the book of the year, "The Shriek," which has 
broken all publishing records. 

Thus ends my prophecy for you. If the years find you still waiting for this 
to come true, remember that I was not a seer. 

Jessie L. Boyd.

Nothing great is lightly won, 

Nothing won is lost; 
Every good deed, nobly done, 

Will repay the cost. 
Leave to Heaven in humble trust, 

All you will to do; 
But, if you succeed, you must 

Paddle your own canoe.
